¡Hola! Me llamo Señorita Jackson. This is my seventh year teaching Spanish 1 at DeRidder High School. However, I have also previously taught Spanish levels 1-3. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in English from the University of Louisiana at Monroe, and I also hold a minor in Spanish. Furthermore, I recently completed the add-on certification for Spanish. I received my Master of Arts in Teaching degree from McNeese State University.
I spent a summer abroad studying in Mérida, México (in the Yucatán Peninsula) where I lived with a Mexican host family and went to school for several weeks. It was an experience that greatly and positively impacted my life forever. I truly enjoy teaching Spanish. I firmly believe that languages open up an entirely new world, and that everyone (if they are able) should attempt their hand at learning a new language. And with Spanish becoming increasingly more popular (especially in the United States), my hope is that whenever a student leaves my class they do so with a greater understanding and appreciation for the Spanish language and its culture.
I am also the sponsor for the Spanish Club here at DeRidder High.
