This has been an exciting year for me...I became a regular on Twitter this past summer, and now, I am typing (do we even say that anymore?) my first official blog!
My name is Amy Mahoney, and I am a Spanish teacher at Norton High School in Norton, MA. I am currently beginning my eighth year of teaching, but technically, I started this job 14 years ago. I had a seven-year stint as a stay-at-home mom in the middle of what I call "Round One" and "Round Two" of teaching. Now that I'm getting in the swing of being back in the classroom, I am returning to graduate school and am currently in my first Rhode Island College Education class.
I think that my passion is linguistics; I have a fun time making up words from the fake Yiddish I never learned. Obviously, I love Spanish. I certainly have an accent as it is my second language, and I am far from perfect when communicating, but I am always working to improve and speak it as much as possible. I'm a talker, so I hear! My husband is the exact opposite of me, thank God.
I look forward to learning, sharing more about myself, and blogging!
