About Me

Hey everyone!

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!


Why blog?

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!
