High School Spanish Teacher
We recently sat down with Sandy Taylor, high school Spanish teacher.
Q: Where did you go to college and what did you study?
A: I went to Ball State University where I graduated a year early with a Spanish and Voice minor and a BA in Business Administration. I also attended Indiana Wesleyan through a transition to teaching program and got my license/certification for Spanish Education.
Q: When did you know you wanted to be a teacher?
A: I originally attended Ball State for Music Education but decided to change my major. It wasn't until after I graduated and got married when I was looking for a business administration job that I realized I did want to teach after all. While seeking employment in the area where my husband worked, I began substitute teaching and decided that I really did enjoy teaching after all. Around that time Heritage was looking for a part time Spanish Teacher so while working for Heritage I made the transition to the teaching program through Indiana Wesleyan University.
Q: What is your favorite part about teaching?
A: I love working with the students and getting to be a part of their lives. It is an honor and is also humbling to know that God can use me to make a positive difference and to be a good influence on them. I also love how even though everyday is the same, it's actually really different because sometimes you just never know what will happen!
Q: What is your favorite part about Heritage?
A: I love the Christian environment and that faith is talked about openly and encouraged. I also love the encouragement and support received from administration.
