My name is Jeanette Marie Borich. I am so excited to have joined St. Luke the Evangelist School learning community as Spanish teacher! I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish and French from South Dakota State University. In 2000 I earned my Master of Science degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Iowa State University. I have over 30 years of experience as a Spanish, French and English Second Language teacher in grades K-12.
My husband, a professor at Iowa State, and I have three pretty cool children--a son and two daughters--who all studied at Iowa State as well. I love reading and spending time with my family. Whenever we can, my husband and I hike and travel.
Learning a second language is an important life skill for everyone in today's global economy. Second language learning also increases our understanding of and empathy for the diverse cultures of our world. As this year progresses, look for Spanish assessment cards that will help your student share her/his Spanish learning with you at home.
