Mrs. Ruth Jeffery

I have been teaching Spanish and English as a Second Language since 1990.  In 1991 I graduated with a B.S. in Psychology and Spanish from Brigham Young University.  In addition to my certification in Spanish, I am certified to teach English as a Second Language.  I consider myself to be a lifelong learner and in 2012 earned my National Board Certification in Spanish.  In February of 2015 I finished my Master in Curriculum Design and Instruction.

I am an active member of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish as well as Teachers of Foreign Language Association.  In addition, I am an active contributor to quarterly newsletters and a presenter at state-wide conferences and district inservices.  I am passionate about what I do and strive to provide the optimal classroom environment for student success.  I believe that not any two students are alike and work with students to focus on their strengths and improve communication both orally and written in the Spanish language.

I believe that we learn best when we are "doing".  My classroom is an active classroom.  Students are prepared to think in the language with the purpose of connecting in-class activities to real life situations.  I understand that critical thinking, collaboration, and compairing are important aspects in preparing students for their future.  Every year I offer language and/or service based educational trips that allow students the opportunity to gain real world experience. 

I am the Sponsor for Diversity Club, Spanish Culture Club, and Youth in Philanthropy.
