Your Instructor: Mrs. Ness
I love teaching Spanish; in fact I have been teaching Spanish for almost 3 decades, far longer than most of my students have been alive. I am currently teaching U.S and A.C.A.D History and Spanish I at Willowcreek Middle School. In addition I am an instructor at BYU and an adjunct professor at Weber State University. I am passionate about teaching a viable, standards based World Language curriculum. My hope is to facilitate students in better understanding the world and their role in it. I look forward to assisting you in coming to understand the Spanish Speaking World and learning to communicate in Spanish.
