¡Hola a todos! My name is Valerie González and I teach Spanish II, III, and IV here at Centennial High School. I am a graduate of Ankeny High School, and I enjoy teaching in Ankeny, where my love of languages began. I love to share my passion for learning languages and cultures with students. I received my teaching degree in Spanish from Iowa State University where I studied abroad at the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey in Mexico City. I completed my Master's in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and Spanish linguistics from the University of Northern Iowa. In my free time I love to spend time traveling with my family. I look forward to a great year here at ACHS!!!
