Bachelors Degree in Spanish Education k-12.
!Hola! My name is Señorita Ocampo. I am from Carol Stream, Illinois. I graduated form Illinois State University in 2018 with a Bachelors Degree in Spanish Education (k-12) and I am currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Spanish at Idaho State Univeristy. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, staying active by participating in different running events, and traveling to different parts of the world to learn about other cultures and their values/traditions. I chose this profession because I believe learning a new language and/or preserving a language opens up many opportunities and helps break down communication barriers.
As a Spanish heritage speaker, I value the importance of understanding culture, traditions, and values of Spanish speaking countries. This is my third year at BHS and I am teaching Spanish Heritage I and Spanish Heritage II. I am very excited to be in the classroom and implement my own personal experiences with the Spanish language and culture.
