About me:
    My name is Karley Mejia and I will be teaching Spanish Immersion and Spanish 2 this school year.  This will be my 5th year teaching.  Prior to coming to Woodbury High School I worked as a Spanish teacher in grades Pre K-7 and I taught 1st grade at Nuevas Fronteras Spanish Immersion for the past two years.  I have experience working with every age group.  I LOVE teaching Spanish and I cannot wait to begin the school year.  I am full of anticipation and am deeply grateful for the opportunity to work with you and your child.
    I have had a wonderful and relaxing summer!  My husband, Mario, and I have been married 6 years.  Mario is from El Salvador.  We have two children, Evelyn (4) and Nathan (1).  In my free time I enjoy going on walks with my family, playing at the park with my kids, going out for ice cream (yummm!!), taking care of my gardens, singing at church, spending time with my family, and finding every opportunity to practice Spanish at home.  Because my husband grew up in El Salvador I get a lot of opportunities to speak Spanish and have constant exposure to the language and the rich, beautiful culture of Latin America.  During my junior year of college I lived in Chile for four months.  There I spent time perfecting my Spanish skills and learning about Chilean history and culture.  I earned my BA from The College of Saint Benedict and I went on to get my teaching license at Hamline University.  I am grateful to be part of the amazing team at Woodbury High School and I am excited for a fantastic school year.

    Learning a second language is a fun and exciting journey.  Spanish and Spanish Immersion education provides more than the opportunity to learn a language, but for your child to become a global citizen.  My overall goal and expectation for the school year is to provide educational opportunities for your child's growth and success in school and in life.  I look forward to being a part of your child's education.

"The high school immersion pathway includes two classes delivered in Spanish (grades 9-11) and a senior capstone course that follow the same state standards and graduation requirements for all District 833 high school students. High school students will be able to take the rest of their graduation requirements in English within the course offerings of Woodbury High School. All Spanish Immersion courses qualify for weighted grade status."
