Hello! Welcome to my Spanish class! My name is Vivian Ainsworth, and I am so excited to be joining Germantown this year to teach Spanish I. This year we will learn all about the Spanish language and the different cultures of Hispanic countries. I love learning about language and culture, and I can't wait to share that with all of you.
While this will be my first time teaching Spanish, it's not my first time working in Madison County Schools. I spent time at both Ridgeland High School and Madison Avenue working with ELLs (English Language Learners). I learned so much about language acquisition and culture by working with these students (many of whom were from Spanish-speaking countries).
I graduated from Mississippi College with a degree in Modern Languages (Spanish and Mandarin). Before that I graduated from Madison Central High School, so I know firsthand what a wonderful school district we are in. I can't wait for the year to begin! If you have any questions, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
