¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español!
Me llamo Señora Rowland. I am from Statesboro, GA and graduated from Georgia Southern University in 2009, with my Bachelor's Degree in Modern Languages (Spanish) and in 2010, with my Master's Degree in Teaching. This is my ninth year in the classroom. I love the Spanish language and different cultures around the world, which inspired me to study the language in college, and following in my mother's footsteps, I became a teacher. I have had the opportunity to travel around the world on various trips, but my most memorable have been to Spain, for a short study abroad and to Mexico, for a study abroad once, and a vacation upon returning a second time.
This is my sixth year with Emanuel County Institute, and I am excited to start another journey with a new set of students. I have found a very friendly and welcoming place to work, with students who are hard-working, respectful, and talented. Our mission is "to graduate all Emanuel County public school students with a meaningful diploma based on rigorous standards which ensures college and career readiness delivered by effective highly qualified educators", and that is my goal each day that I am in the classroom teaching my students.
I strive to provide my students with a safe and welcoming environment, where they feel comfortable learning, and to put my absolute best into every lesson that I plan, prepare, and teach. I give 100 percent and expect that in return from my students, with their work ethic, behavior, and attitude when they are in my class. Each student is capable of learning a foreign language, although a determined effort must be given in order to do so. This is going to be a wonderful year of learning, and I am looking forward to it!
“Teachers don't just teach; they can be vital personalities who help young people to mature, to understand the world, and to understand themselves. A good education consists of much more than useful facts and marketable skills.” -Charles Platt
