Bonjour! ¡Buenos Días! 
My name is Kristen Chipps and I teach both French and Spanish Exploratory classes.  I grew up in Illinois, about an hour outside of Chicago.  I was very fortunate to start my exposure to languages in sixth grade when I participated in a three week exchange program to France.  Needless to say, I was hooked and have been learning languages ever since.  I studied both French and Spanish through high school and continued both languages when I went to Central College.  I have participated in study abroad programs both at Central and at UNI while completing my Master's degree.

I have taught both Spanish and French for many years from 6th grade through 12th grade in Iowa and in Wisconsin.  I have been in Ankeny teaching French and Spanish exploratory since 2006.

I hope to extend my love of languages and travel to all of my students.  I have been fortunate to travel to over two thirds of the United States and fifteen foreign countries.

I am available during the day by email.
