Dear Families of Spanish Students,
Hola y Bienvenidos a la clase de español! Hello and welcome to Spanish Class! My name is Ms. Beth Casey.
I am very happy to have joined the Genesee School District in 2017.
Prior to that, I spent ten years overseas with my husband teaching Spanish, English, ESL and French in international schools. Before that I lived and taught in the greater Seattle area as well as in Asia and Africa, and prior to that I taught French in my hometown, Moscow. We returned to Moscow three years ago - after more than two decades away - in order to be closer to family.
I have always had a compelling interest in other languages and cultures, starting with an exploratory Spanish class and a 5-week trip to Spain with Moscow Jr. High School Spanish Club. We had a 3 week homestay with Spanish families and took classes at the Universidad de Salamanca, a life-changing experience.
