Mrs. Angie Behm

¡Hola a todos! I am Angie Behm and I am the World Languages Department Chair and I teach Spanish I and IV at BHS.  The mission of our department is to each critical language skills via structured learning opportunities that authentically practice all modes of communication* [interpretive (comprehending), interpersonal (person-person communication) & presentational (prepared)] in real-life situations. Students will also learn about other cultures, see how culture and language are intertwined, and make comparisons with their own cultures.  The teachers in our department are dedicated, creative, and passionate about languages.  We have lots to offer so it's no wonder that BHS World Language students have great things to say about our courses and feel prepared to use their langauge skills in college and beyond.    

I personally love interacting with my students and watching them make connections and grow as langauge learners.  My professional background includes seventeen years teaching with twelve of those years years at BHS, four years teaching in Arizona and one year in Wisconsin.
