Ms. Mary Crouch
I'm a Huntsville, AL native. I live in Huntsville with my husband and our two kids, Aidan and Eleanor. I went to school at Hazel Green and then to university at UAH for an undergrad in Spanish Language and at Auburn for an M.Ed. in Secondary Spanish Ed. I've taught in Colombia (South America), Tennessee, and in Decatur, AL before coming to James Clemens. I started teaching Spanish here in 2013. I love to focus classes most on real-world functions of langauge, and we read, listen, speak, and write a lot in class! And, we also explore culture, go shopping, make food, eat, and dance! My favorite thing about language is culture so we learn a lot about that, and my goal is for you to feel confident communicating in real-world situations with Spanish-speakers and in Spanish-speaking countries with cultural awareness. I love to travel to Spanish-speaking countries, and I'd love for you to feel the same way about Spanish and Hispanic cultures and travel to those places too!
