Ms. Sarah Marver
Spanish Teacher K-8
Santa Teresa de Jesús (Avila) - Carmelite of Toledo
Bacherlor of Arts in Middle Childhood/Early Adolescent English as a Second language Education, Spanish Education
I am a recent graduate of Saint Norbert College 2021. My hometown is Sheboygan, WI. I enjoy being outdoors, spending time with my parents, family doggo (Ellie) and friends, creating art, trying new foods, baking, learning about different cultures, and reading theological literature of varying Christian sects. I was raised in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) and by God\\\'s grace was able to attend private, religious LCMS schools from pre-K to 12th grade. My educational journey continued at Saint Norbert College where I gained an even deeper understanding of the foundations of the Christian faith, educational strategies and skills, English as a Second Language methods, and the Spanish language. There, I was also able to experience the journey of a lifetime in Toledo, Spain and form connections with my host mom, Doctor Maria Purificación. She taught me about Spanish culture, Catholicism, and the importance of taking a break and enjoying life with those you love. I have previous experience teaching Bilingual (Spanish - English) 2nd and 3rd grade, as well as, teaching 7th and 8th grade Spanish and Bilingual 3rd grade (Spanish - English) through my student teaching assignments. I enjoy creativity, active engagement, and student choice in learning. I\\\'m excited to call Notre Dame my home, especially due to the kind and considerate staff I have to learn from. I look forward to teaching K-8 Spanish this year as the Spanish language and Hispanic culture are some of my greatest loves. I also am excited to meet each student and form connections with them.
A Note From Ms. Marver:
¡Hola! ¡Bienvenidos a la clase de Espanol!
Hello! Welcome to Spanish class!
Classroom and Assignment Instructions:
In 5th grade and at the middle school levels we will be using Google Classroom, as well as, our online textbook. Unfortunately, the language department was unaware of if we would have an online resource for our book and activities relating to the text until 8/24/2021. As a result, students will be receiving more information on how to enroll in our online textbook in the coming weeks.
