Ms. Mitchell

LEEmitchellF

Every day, Spanish teacher Ms. Mitchell graces the students of San Mateo with her knowledge of the Spanish language and culture. Ever since she began her teaching career at San Mateo in 1998, she has continued to inspire her students to learn and enjoy her classes.

After the experience of going to Argentina in high school as an exchange student, Ms. Mitchell lived in Spain during her time in college as well, which later led to her passion for teaching Spanish to students.

“I love that language connects people,” she said, voicing her desire to spread this passion to her students. Not only that, unlike the beliefs of some teachers, high school students are not annoying or noisy to her—no, Ms. Mitchell finds then funny and energetic.

Moreover, one element that sets her apart is her open perspective to different cultures in the world, saying that she wanted to remind students that their culture and way of thinking are not the only ones in the world.

“Life gets better after high school, so try to keep an open mind,” she said as a  few words of encouragement. “Be kind to yourself and kind to others.”
