Degrees and Certifications:
It is my pleasure to be returning to St. Cajetan School this year to teach Spanish. I teach Spanish to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.
I have taught high school/junior high French and or Spanish for many years in public, private and Catholic schools.
I studied at Illinois State University where I earned a bachelor of arts degree in French/Spanish secondary education and also a master of arts degree in French. Recently I received an endorsement for teaching English as a second language from National Louis University.
In our Spanish classes this year, we will do many things. We start each class period with "Padre Nuestro" (Our Father) which the students from last year have memorized. I look forward to learning it with this year's 6th graders. It is my intention to keep them engaged and not shy of practicing their Spanish vocabulary and expressions. Please encourage them to continue to practice out loud at home.
Please contact me via email at Ktangel@cajetan.org if you have questions or concerns. Muchas gracias!
