Welcome to Spanish 3 with Señora Zoller! I’m looking so forward to guiding you through a year of language learning and cultural exploration. The course will be challenging, but I think you’ll also find it very rewarding.

My Education and Professional Background

I received my Bachelor degree in Spanish from the University of Mary Washington in Virginia. While enrolled in that program I was fortunate to study abroad for an extended semester in Quito, Ecuador. I love to share incredible memories and insights from my time there, and highly encourage all students to find a path to studying abroad; it truly is the best way to learn a language. After completing undergraduate work I moved to Boston, Massachusetts to attend Simmons College. I earned a Master of Teaching in Secondary Education.

My Educational Philosophy

Learning a language can be a daunting task- it asks the student to take risks and work outside of their comfort zone, both in the classroom and while studying at home. Learning a language is also one of the best ways to connect communities and learn about our world from a new point of view. My overwhelming hope is that every student that walks into our classroom feels a sense of belonging, is nurtured, and feels safe in this learning journey. I ask my students to be daily active participants in our class and to have a growth mindset in how they approach each task at hand; in turn, I will give them the tools they need to be successful. Together we can explore the “why” in the question “why should I learn Spanish?” and I truly hope each of my students finds their personal answer.
