¿Quién es Maestra Wetzig?
¡Hola! Thanks for stopping by! My name is Jenny Wetzig and I'm very excited to begin my journey at Denver School of the Arts. I was born in Boulder but grew up in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. I loved Spanish in high school and took advantage of every opportunity to use it. At St. Olaf College (MN), I studied Spanish and Sociology/Anthropology.
After a semester in Costa Rica studying rural community tourism, I knew I wanted to be fluent. After college, I had the opportunity to join the program WorldTeach and taught English in Chile for a year. It was an incredible experience and solidified my passion for language, culture and travel.
Back in Colorado, I worked at Denver Language School for a year then went to the University of Denver for my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction - Linguistically Diverse Education. This is the start of my 7th year teaching and I spent the last five at East High School.
My goal is to teach empathy and understanding through language. I use Comprehensible Input strategies to reach all students and believe everyone can learn a language. Here's to a great school year!
