Degrees and Certifications:
I am Ms. Curran and I teach 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Spanish. This is my 4th year teaching at Hannah Beardsley Middle School. I graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a B.A. in Spanish Education (K-12) and an endorsement in English as a Second Language. My Junior year of college I studied abroad for six months in Barcelona, Spain where I attended the University of Barcelona. I also completed an internship as an English Teaching Assistant at The Colegio San Josep de Teresianes, a K-12 school in Barcelona. During my time there, I was able to travel around various parts of Spain and learn different cultures. My hobbies include spending time with my friends and family, playing with my dogs, dancing, and watching movies. I am also a HUGE Real Madrid soccer fan! I am so excited to be working at Hannah Beardsley Middle School and to be able to share my love of the Spanish language and cultures with my students!
