Students often ask me how I became a Spanish teacher. The story starts when I moved to Vancouver, B.C. my senior year of high school. There, I was required to take a foreign language. Being that I was a foreigner, they allowed me to choose between French or Spanish. My dad traveled all over the world due to work because of that, my brother and I had a lot of travel experience. We traveled to more Spanish speaking countries than French, so of course, I opted to study Spanish. After graduating from High School in Canada, I enrolled in Carthage College. It is a smaller school located in Kenosha Wisconsin. Before the school year started, the guidance department encouraged me to take the Spanish clept test. With that one year of high school Spanish, I learned enough information to test out of 3 college Spanish classes which valued 15 credits. In order to get those 15 free credits I needed to take the next Spanish class in the sequence and earn a grade of C or better. After that, I was hooked. It was my favorite class and I don't usually have favorties.
This year I will be teaching the Spanish I and III curriculums.
