Spanish SAT Club
Are you ready to test you Spanish capabilities? Ready to take the Spanish SAT?
Missoula International School is here to help you take your Spanish abilities to the next level with the Spanish SAT Club!
At this Club, Kristen Joerns will deliver SAT Preparatory material and hone your Spanish skills!
Meet Kirsten Joerns,
Hola! My name is Kirsten Joerns, and I am the new teacher for the Spanish SAT preparatory class. I was born in Mexico City, but I grew up in Cali, Colombia, where I attended a bilingual school for sixteen years. My mother is from California and my father is from Cali, so growing up my younger sister and I were exposed to both the American culture and the Colombian culture. We were the only family on the block that celebrated all the Colombian holidays along with Thanksgiving and the 4th of July. Through travel, I have experienced other countries, such as the Dominican Republic, Brazil, Venezuela, and Mexico. This introduced me to the many different Spanish dialects and cultures within Latin America.
I moved to Missoula, Montana in 2009 to start my college career, which took a few twists and turns along the way until I decided education was what I wanted to do. This made my mother, who is also a teacher, very happy. Through this experience, I have gained additional experience teaching Spanish to students that are beginners as well as those who have had a few years practice. I am excited to have been offered the opportunity to work with the SAT preparatory class and sharing my experiences.
