Parent Letter Span3
Queridos Padres y Estudiantes,
Hola, me llamo Lieu Stoddart. I have been teaching Spanish, all levels 1-AP, for the past 20 years. I have also taught the Teacher Cadet program. I was born in Laos but grew up in Fairfax (Vienna), VA most of my life. I married and moved to SC, where I currently reside in Summerville with my husband and daughter. I completed my B.A. in Spanish & Secondary Education, grades 8-12, at Longwood University in Farmville, VA where I completed a study abroad program in Valencia, Spain in 1995. I recently completed my online M.E.d program in Curriculum & Instruction at the University of Phoenix, AZ on Feb.2016. Prior to teaching at Hanahan High (2006-present), I taught at Goose Creek High (2000-2004). I am fluent in 5 languages (Lao, Vietnamese, English, Spanish & some French). I love teaching and I hope to expand learners' knowledge of Spanish language and culture. I am a Junior Class & Prom Co-Sponsor with Mrs. Price, and I also sponsor of the International Club. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
