Profe. Angela Butler
Hola! Me llamo Profesora (Profe) Butler.
I started taking Spanish in 10th grade because the other electives I chose to take were already full. I continued to study Spanish because I thought it would be useful to know. The more I studied, the more interested I became in the language, culture, dance, and music.
I have lived in Chile, Brazil, and Spain, and traveled to Scotland, England, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and throughout the United States. I spent my summers in Lander, WY and I absolutely love the mountains & outdoor activities. My profile picture is from my most recent trip to Alaska (summer 2022) with Denali in the background.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree & a Certificate of Equity & Diversity from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, and a Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of St. Thomas & a Master of Science in Spanish from MN State University, Mankato.
I have been teaching for 18 years!
I teach group fitness after school, so I like to bring a mind and body balance to the classroom. You can expect to be moving around and taking deep breaths to get your body energized to learn. Students in Spanish 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 practice Yoga en Español.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my son (a freshman in college), dogs, and family. I also enjoy riding my Harley, hiking, and traveling. I am very excited to learn about your goals, hopes and dreams as we challenge ourselves en la clase de Español.
I will be using SCHOOLOGY for all curriculum.
