Degrees and Certifications:
The word education was once largely synonymous with experience. A trip abroad, or a weekend at camp, was supposed to make you a more educated person. Learning was what happened as a consequence of rich and varied experiences, and the worst way to learn was to isolate yourself from the world and other people. - Frank Smith
When people believe their basic qualities can be developed, failures may still hurt, but failures don't define them. And if abilities can be expanded- if change and growth are possible- then there are still many paths to success. - Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D.
The best way to learn anything is to teach it to others. - Dr. Becky A. Bailey
Mrs. Mary Evermon is a recent transfer to Texas from Missouri, where she taught Spanish and ESL, and also obtained her certificate in Middle School English. This is her seventh year teaching. Mrs. Evermon teaches Spanish 1 and Spanish 3 at S. F. Austin High School, and is enjoying working with her new Foreign Language department and interacting with her AHS Bulldogs.
Mrs. Evermon lived in the South American country of Argentina from ages 6 to 12, and speaks Argentine Spanish, or Castellano. Upon entry into college, she earned her bachelor's degree in Spanish, and says that college helped her written skills catch up with her fluency in speaking. Mrs. Evermon highly recommends that students (be they beginners or heritage speakers) strive to excel in all areas of language (reading, writing, speaking, listening) in order to feel more confident and be more versatile in their chosen second (or third or fourth!) language.
Mrs. Evermon lives in Sugar Land with her husband and three beautiful children. She enjoys reading, cooking, listening to instrumental music, going for walks, and watching movies with her children. What she wants most for her students is for them to understand that it is their experiences with and exposure to diverse populations and cultures that will not only help them better understand the world without, but also to better reflect on the world within as they continue on their individual journeys to self-realization.
