About the teacher

I am Shanna Letner, the Spanish teacher at Washington County High School.  I have been teaching Spanish for eight years and this is my fourth year at WCHS.  I graduated from Hart County High School and I am a KY native.  I went to Western Kentucky University for my bachelor’s degree and University of Louisville for my master’s degree.  My bachelor’s was in hotel, restaurant and tourism management.  I worked as a manager in the hotel industry for six years before going back to school to get my teaching certificate.  I took Spanish classes at Western to obtain a minor in Spanish and then took more Spanish classes at U of L to get the equivalent of a bachelor’s in Spanish.  I also took all of my education classes at U of L to obtain a MAT in 2013.

My goal as a Spanish teacher is to teach students about other cultures and help them to be able to communicate in Spanish at a novice level.  Students will read, write, speak and understand Spanish at a novice level by the end of Spanish II.  Students will not achieve fluency after two years of high school instruction but will be able to communicate using basic everyday phrases and vocabulary.
