Shelley FaivreSpanish Teacher
B.A., University of California, Santa Barbara
Graduate work in Spain, France, and Mexico
I have been teaching Spanish or content in Spanish for 21 years, and my experience spans kindergarten through 12th grade, including bilingual education. I love the element of creativity we as teachers get to enjoy, and I am always appreciative that my subject allows me to talk with students about so many things! That exchange of energy with the students and getting to laugh with them is one of my primary joys as a teacher. If I’m able to help to create “world citizens” with my efforts as a teacher, that would make me very happy. I’m grateful for the enthusiasm that the students and parents have for learning languages here at Our Lady of Fatima, and I’m grateful for the community as a whole.
In my free time, I love reading in Spanish and French and I am member of a Spanish language book club. My son, husband and I enjoy hiking in the Northwest and cooking good food!
