My name is Libby Hess, or Profe Hess to my students. I am a twenty-something Spanish teacher in rural east Tennessee. I went to Maryville College where I majored in Spanish with Teacher Licensure. During my time at MC, I was required to complete a semester abroad. As luck would have it, I just happened to meet the love of my life, who was a Chilean student at the same university, but that’s a story for another day. Now I am a full-time high school Spanish teacher. I am a department of one and teach at a tiny (PreK-12th in the same building) school. Although there are certainly many challenges, I love teaching in a community school. Rest assured there will be more posts about this!
The short answer is that I’ve always enjoyed writing. I even had a fashion blog in college–don’t worry; it’s deleted. Now, I’m in my final semester of graduate school for a Master’s in Curriculum and Education. My last class is a project class, and I’ve always wanted to blog about teaching Spanish, coaching cheerleading, and surviving–and thriving–as an educator. So, Me llamo Profe Hess was born.
I hope you find this page inspirational and helpful like I have found so many others’ blogs!
