Spanish 1 teacher Kelley Goldsberry, has come to share her knowledge and experiences in the foreign languages department. From traveling the world as a business woman to caring for her children, Goldsberry has come to change students view on foreign language.

“Hopefully, I’m going to make Spanish 1 not a scary, overwhelming task. I want my students to look at it as when I get out of Spanish one, I can hold a basic conversation, I can actually use Spanish somewhere, somehow, someway, so that it becomes something that’s valuable to them instead of something that they have to do,” Goldsberry said.”

Goldsberry received her undergraduate degree from Anderson University and obtained her teaching and master’s degree from Indiana Wesleyan University.

She went to school for international business in Spanish because she wanted to travel, but after five years of work, she decided to become a teacher because of her love of the language, and she wanted to share her experiences with the Spanish language.

She has taught Spanish for six years total: one at Northview Middle School in Indianapolis and five in Mahomet near Champaign, Illinois. In Illinois, she taught Spanish 2, 3 and 4 honors.

After moving here, Goldsberry did not think she had time to obtain a teaching job; however, two days before school began, she landed a job here.. She teaches classes for periods one through three.

When she is not working on lesson plans, Goldsberry is a mother with two kids ages one and four. She is usually very busy but likes to stay active; she enjoys outdoor activities like walking, hiking, riding bikes and sports.
