¡Bienvenidos a la clase de Español!
Me llamo Señora Cook. ¡Estoy muy emocionada por la oportunidad de explorar el mundo de español con ustedes!
Welcome to Spanish!
My name is Suzanne Cook. I am thrilled to work with my students and their families this year in Spanish. 2023-2024 will be my eighth year at Reynolds School! If you are new to Reynolds, bienvenido! I would love to share a little information about myself.
I grew up in a home where Italian was spoken, which sparked curiosity about language and culture in me at a young age. My first formal experience learning a language was studying Spanish as a seventh grader at River Dell Middle School. The rest is history! I went on to earn dual degrees in Spanish and Linguistics from Georgetown University, with a minor in the teacher preparation program. While at Georgetown, I also studied French intensively. I lived in Europe for three years and served as a teacher for students who were part of military families serving overseas. Did you know that I have visited over 15 countries, including Spain? I can't wait to share my experiences with you and to hear about your travels! Finally, I am the mother of three sons who are also all learning Spanish! In our free time, we love to travel and experience new cultures together.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Welcome to a wonderful year exploring the language and cultures of the Spanish- Speaking world! I am excited to be on this "viaje" with you!
