Ms. Moreno, the new Spanish teacher, loves Fairmont. She loves how Fairmont welcomed and supports her, as a new teacher. She likes teaching Spanish because it gives her the ability to share her culture. However, she did not want to teach Spanish from the start. In fact, she wanted to be an archeologist because she was inspired by the movie The Mummy, but decided not to pursue that career because she realized archeologists had to deal with spiders, animals, and insects that come along with it. When she was younger she did not like her culture, she desired to be a regular American girl, but she later accepted her culture as she grew. One of the many reasons she loves Fairmont is how diverse our population is and how we accept anyone from any culture. Her major goal as a teacher this year is to help students become proficient in the language and to maintain interest in the language. Outside of the classroom Ms. Moreno coaches soccer to children with developmental disabilities. We are so happy to have Ms. Moreno in our Fairmont family.
