Ms. Michaele Leatherman Shugart

I have been teaching Spanish and/or ESL for 28 years, 17 of those years here at Maiden High.  I have taught in all grades and levels, from Kindergarten through 12th and in elementary, middle and high schools throughout the county.  I teach Spanish levels I through V on a yearly basis and currently have classes in level 2, 3, and 4/5.  Next year will probably be my last one tecaching and I look forward to reitiring and working on my farm with the horses and otther animals.  I am also the co-advisor for the Spanish Club, the lead mentor for our new teachers here at Maiden, the TAC rep for our school at district meetings, and the NCAE rep for our school.  

I look forward to a busy but productive year teaching Spanish and look forward to getting to know a brand new group of students.  When you are in my class, you are my kids and I will do whatever I can to be sure that you are successful.  I expect your best effort on every activity we do in class and will give you my best every day.  Welcome to Spanish class!  ¡Bienvendos a la clase de español!
