Who Am I?

My name is Señora Shelby Marchese. I am so excited to be entering my eighth year at Greenacres! I am extremely passionate about the Spanish language and culture. I spent my junior year of high school studying abroad in Vigo, Spain where I learned Spanish. I majored in Spanish in college and I travel to Spain to visit my host family frequently. My dream is to one day buy a small summer cottage and spend my summers there with my husband and three children.

I couldn't be happier to be teaching Spanish as a FLES teacher at the elementary level. I love coming to work every day and teaching your children. The most important thing to me is that they are having fun while learning! I make sure to create a safe environment. In my classroom, it is not about having perfect pronunciation or grammar. I want students to be more comfortable and confident in a multicultural world.

I look forward to seeing them grow this year and continue developing their oral proficiency skills!
