ML- Spanish Jennifer Aguirre
Hola! My name is Jennifer Aguirre. I have been teaching Spanish since 1999 and have been in Ankeny since 2006. I have a BA from Central College where I double majored in Cultural Anthropology and Spanish. I also have a Masters from the University of Iowa in Spanish Education and an endorsement in Talented and Gifted Education. I enjoy teaching and sharing my love of language, culture, and learning with my students. I intend to challenge my students to set personal goals and explore new ways of looking at the world around them. I also hope to instill in them a passion for lifelong learning and a curiosity for learning about and understanding people, perspectives and cultures different from their own. I am a proud graduate of Ankeny High School many years ago :-) and feel blessed to be living and working in such an amazing community of dedicated students, teachers, parents, and other professionals. My husband is also a teacher and works in Des Moines in middle school special education. We have four children and a dog. I enjoy music and dance, as well as watching my children play sports and participate in other activities. Each year I look forward to meeting my new students as well as catching up with all the wonderful students I had the opportunity to get to know in prior years. I am also the Spanish Club advisor and the National Spanish Honor Society sponsor. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time with questions and/or concerns.
