Welcome to Sra. Thebaut's class! I am thrilled to be your Spanish and Introduction to Foreign Languages (wheel) teacher. We are going to have a great year. I have been teaching since 2004 and at Mill Valley Middle since 2013. I love teaching language and bringing cultures alive in the classroom. My goal is that all my students will be inspired to continue on the journey of learning a language.
Traveling or studying abroad to experience a different culture first-hand is something I want to inspire each of my students to do - whether it's during his/her middle or high school years, college years, or beyond. While studying at San Diego State University, I spent two years studying in Spain and Italy.There is nothing like immersing yourself into a language and culture that you have seen only in textbooks! It's the experience of a lifetime. During the summers, I continue to explore new places. I have been all over Mexico, Central America, Europe, North Africa, Vietnam and Turkey. I can't wait to share my experiences and welcome students to share their experiences and perspectives as well.
Please stop into room 92 and say hello!
