Miss McKenzie Vickery
¡Hola héroes! My name is Señorita Vickery and I am thrilled to be teaching Spanish at Harbison West. I was born and raised in Columbia, so it is no suprise that I became a Gamecock! I graduated in May with my Bachelors in Spanish and my Minor in Foreign Language Education from the University of South Carolina. Before graduating, I was blessed to have the opportunity to study in Seville, Spain. While I was there, I worked in an English academy teaching students your age. Learning about other cultures and languages has always been a love of mine, but my true passion is teaching!
We are going to have the best year in Spanish! We will sing, dance, play games, and create and act out crazy stories through the method, Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS). This researched-backed approach to teaching and learning foreign languages has something for every learner at every level. I look forward to sharing the joy of learning a new language, highlighting the talent and creativity of our students, and growing together!
