¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español!

This is my 15th year of teaching Spanish at Stewartville High School. I am also beginning my 43rd year of teaching. I am a graduate of Gustavus Adolphus College, and prior to coming to Stewartville, I taught for 28 years at Bishop Heelan Catholic High School in Sioux City, Iowa.  I have been married to my husband, Jim, for 44 years.  Jim is retired, and currently  is in charge of our dog, Mocha.  I have one married daughter, Jamie, who is the Manager of Design and Development for Life Time Fitness in Chanhassen, Minnesota.  I have an eight year old grandson, Jacob, and 5 year old granddaughter, Joie. 

This year I will be teaching Spanish II and Spanish III.  I am looking forward to a great year!

Spanish is unlike any class you have ever taken. All levels of Spanish are classes designed for success where students will be engaged in a variety of learning activities during the course of a class period. We have moved into a new textbook series, Así se dice.  It is an exciting new series that has a digital platform that incorporates a variety of audio and written activities.  Students receive instant feedback as activities are graded and sent to a Learning Management System. Overall grades will be given for online practice activities, quizzes, tests and projects  Grades are weighted, with homework counting for 10% of the grade and tests/quizzes counting as 90% of the grade.   .

It is my belief that each child has unique gifts and talents.  It is my hope as your instructor to provide a welcoming environment where there is an atmosphere of caring and respect where these gifts and talents can be developed and you will thrive.  It is my desire that you leave my classroom with not only a working knowledge of Spanish and a better understanding of and respect for other cultures, but also with a deeper respect for the other students in the class and a greater confidence in yourself.  

Feel free to contact me by phone (533-1519) or e-mail ( ) if you have any questions or concerns. I am at school from 7:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
