Welcome to Spanish class!
About Mrs. King:
Hola! My name is Mrs. King and I live in Hamburg. I am the Spanish teacher here at Hamburg Area Middle School.
I graduated from Lebanon Valley College in 2009. I am very excited to be starting a fifth year here at the middle school. I previously taught in the Tilden Elementary Center and I was there for 5 years. I will be starting a new adventure this school year. Along with teaching Spanish in the middle school (8th grade only), I will be teaching three sections of Spanish 1 in the high school. This school year will be my 10th year in the district. I have a Bachelors of Arts degree in Spanish Education and a Program Specialist certificate for English as a Second Language. While at Lebanon Valley College, I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to study abroad in Salamanca, Spain in 2007. I was there for a four month program where I took courses in Spanish and lived with a host family. I was able to travel to a lot of neat places in Spain, including Barcelona, Madrid, Seville, Córdoba, Granada, and Valencia, and outside of Spain, including Rome, Florence, Paris, London, and Lisbon. In 2011, I earned my Master's degree in Educational Development and Strategies through Wilkes University in May of 2012. I was fortunate enough to return to Spain two times to tour some new places including Bilbao, San Sebastian, Montserrat and El Escorial.
I am looking forward to another exciting year of language and culture!
