photo: Elizabeth KlinknerI am so excited to be teaching Spanish at Friendly Hills Middle School. I began my time in District 197 in 2013 at Pilot Knob STEM Elementary School.  I have a BA in Spanish from the University of Minnesota with minors in International Relations and Foreign Studies.  I am working toward a Masters of Instruction from St. Mary's University as well.  

From 2007 to 2013, I worked in District 196 as a Spanish teacher in Elementary and Middle schools and as a substitute teacher.

I have a husband, Mark and four sons, Josh, Will, Matthias and Luke who keep me very busy. Our favorite hobby as a family is traveling.  I worked in Incentive Travel for Carlson Marketing Group and Business Incentives so I have traveled extensively.  The Spanish speaking countries I have traveled to are: Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia and Spain.
