Ms. Jacqueline Wiley
I am Señora Jacqueline Farinon Wiley and I learned Spanish as a second language (just like you!). After studying Spanish in middle and high school, I went on to major in Spanish (along with English - a true lover of language!) and seek a graduate degree in Secondary Education after returning from living in Spain and completing an internship in a school in Madrid. During my 16 years as an educator I have taught all levels from 7th grade to Spanish 5. In my free time I have traveled to and studied in various Spanish-speaking countries in order to continue learning about Hispanic cultures and expand my language skills. At home I speak Spanish to my two children, ages 5 and 3 and am fascinated watching them grow up bilingual. My goal is to foment an interest in language and culture in my students and to provide a positive learning environment in which students feel confident and see improvement in their Spanish skills.
