Mrs. Jennifer Shatto
¡Yo soy Jennifer Shatto! I am very excited to be teaching Spanish 1 and 3 at LPS. This year I will also be teaching 5th grade! I have been teaching Spanish for almost 25 years and I love teaching. I graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station with a B.S. in Community Health Whoop! My Secondary Education Certification is from the University of North Texas. I learned the Spanish language from studying abroad for a year in Monterrey, México at the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey and while studying in Cuernavaca, México at El Centro Bilingue. After I started teaching, I studied in Spain at the Escuela Internacional in Málaga. I love teaching my students Spanish and about the culture, and we will have a lot of fun learning the language.
I am married, and I have 2 kids and 2 dogs. My daughter Lauren is a SENIOR at Centennial High School and my son Ryan is going to be a ninth grader at LPS. I love to travel, spend time with my family, surf the Internet for creative ways to teach Spanish, interesting websites and stories to use in my classes. During my free time I also like to do Pilates and garden. It’s going to be a fantastic year at LPS, and I can't wait get to know all of my students!
