Mrs. Keffer is a Spanish teacher at Millbrook High School. She teaches Spanish II and III. She was born in Georgia, then moved to Virginia, Maryland, and Germany, and she went to high school in Hawaii. “I am what’s known as an army brat,” she said. She attended a liberal arts college named Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania. “I majored in Spanish and also got my teaching certificate.” Mrs. Keffer has also traveled to many Spanish speaking countries such as Costa Rica, Mexico, and Panama in the last 10 to 15 years. She also spent in a year in Spain to study. “I would like to go to South America,” she said.
She has worked at Millbrook for about 6 years now. In the past she worked in a middle school for about 11 years and then started teaching high school. “I like the students. I do wish they would understand that speaking Spanish is a skill, not just for an Advanced Diploma,” she said, “Everyday I work on changing that.” In general she loves the challenge in teaching. “Everyday is a new day. It’s problem solving all day long, I can still be me but get my point across.” Past students contact Mrs. Keffer on how they speak Spanish in their job or hear other kids start to use the language more. “I look forward to those emails.”
