¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español! Welcome to Spanish class!
My name is Jason Vanet and I am excited for my fourth year here at Gainesville Jr. High School. This year in Spanish, we will focus on five Cs of learning languages: Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities. In doing so, we will focus on speaking, listening, reading, and writing in Spanish as well as learn about the history, geography, and cultures within the language.
In addition to teaching Spanish, I coach the 7th and 8th grade Spelling UIL team in the fall and host Guitar Club in the spring.
Before teaching, I attended Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant, Oklahoma, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Education. As part of my studies, I spent time in the Dominican Republic for a fully imersive experience in the Spanish speaking world to bring authentic experience and context into my teaching.
Currently, I live in Oklahoma with my lovely wife, our husky, and three cats. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, working on our new home, and playing music.
