TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We are a husband and wife teaching team! I (Señora Blair) am currently in my 3rd year teaching Spanish 1 & 2. I started my teaching career at the high school level and transitioned to the junior high level for the 2012-2013 school year but have since returned to the high school level for this current school year. My husband (Señor Blair) is currently in his 2nd year teaching Language Arts. He began teaching 7th grade language arts and Texas history and this year has transitioned to teaching language arts and geography at the 6th grade level. We love what we do and hope that this is apparent in our work. Thank you for visiting our site!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I am a non-native Spanish speaker and I began studying the language in the 5th grade. I continued studying the language through junior high, high school and college and I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Spanish. I received my Master's degree in Secondary Education in May 2012 and began teaching during the 2011-2012 school year. I love the Spanish language and culture and I love teaching!
