Mrs Jacques is overjoyed to join the staff at Mount Royal to share her love of the Spanish language and culture with the students. She earned her bachelor of science in secondary education and Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she was fortunate enough to completed a semester long student teaching at the Overseas Family School in Singapore. She also studied elementary education at La Universidad Nacional in Heredia, Costa Rica for a year.
Most recently, Mrs Jacques has been homeschooling her two children. To keep her language instruction skills current, she has privately taught Spanish to individuals, families, home school groups, and offered after school elementary enrichment Spanish classes. Prior to moving to New Hampshire, Mrs. Jacques taught Spanish at Remington Middle School in Franklin, Massachusetts and at Hanover Middle School in Hanover, MA. She was a teacher representative to the School Council and has been involved in the theatre both as an actress, an improvisational coach and as a director. She looks forward to this new adventure.
