Teacher Profile

Ms. Carolyn Bracksieck
Spanish Teacher Hs

I am excited to be here at the Ranch.  I am originally from Wisconsin but have lived in many places and am married with two beautiful daughters.  I studied Spanish at La Universidad de Las Americas in Puebla, Mexico as an exchange student.  After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse with a B.A. in Spanish I moved to Mexico to live and work, then to New York City, and finally to Houston Texas where I decided to become a teacher. I have also been able to travel to places like Spain and the Dominican Republic and  I am very passionate about teaching Spanish and sharing the beauty and culture of the language with others.

My philosophy as a teacher:  Communication is key.  Students need to be speaking and communicating in the language on a daily basis so that it is of use to them in real world and not something that they studied once upon a time.
