Michelle Moro Yanez

Michelle Moro Yanez returned to Avenues in the fall of 2018 as an Avenues Interim Masters (AIM) intern in the Lower Division. She previously worked with us as a substitute teacher in the Lower Division and as a 5th grade Spanish teacher. She most recently served as a long-term substitute Spanish teacher at the United Nations International School (UNIS) in New York, where she worked with students in grades 1 through 4. In this role, she maintained a schedule of 20 classes per week, implementing reading and writing workshops and successfully improving student participation through creative role-playing exercises. Her previous positions include a preschool Spanish teacher at Lollys Early Childhood Center and a Spanish as a Second Language teacher at Instituto Cervantes in New York. 

Michelle received a master’s degree in political science and a separate master’s degree in communication from Universidad Complutense de Madrid in Spain. She is certified by the Instituto Cervantes as a Spanish as a second language teacher. 

In her spare time, Michelle enjoys spending time with her daughter, hiking, doing Pilates and spinning, and traveling, especially to Spain to spend time with family and friends.
