Spanish Teacher

Kristin

The kindergarten through high school Spanish teacher at Odyssey, Kristin has been learning and teaching languages through immersion for several years. After studying abroad in Spain in 2005, Kristin spent six months in Nicaragua volunteering as an assistant teacher in an elementary school and studying Spanish as a Rotary Scholar. Afterwards, she traveled to Mexico to volunteer as an assistant teacher in Asheville’s sister city, San Cristobal.

Upon returning to the United States she sought out more language immersion opportunities by working at a bilingual Spanish-English preschool and later teaching English at a middle school in Greece for a year. Besides teaching K-12 Spanish at Odyssey, Kristin teaches English as a Second Language to Spanish-speaking adults. She loves the intersection of language and culture and strives to incorporate art, music and cultural awareness as much as possible in the classroom so that her students gain the skills, curiosity and appreciation that can take them anywhere in the world as adults.


Odyssey School is an independent, non-profit school with a focus on whole child, emotionally intelligent, personalized curriculum for students in PreK-12.

Our mission is to prepare students, families, and educators to lead the 21st century with an authentic sense of self.
