Name: Laura Frei '13
Major: Spanish Education
Position: K-9th Grade Spanish teacher at the Albany Academies
I teach Spanish at elementary and secondary levels. I majored in Spanish Education, so teaching was always my ideal position. Between all of the Spanish courses that I took at Siena and a semester abroad in Sevilla, Spain; I feel prepared when I enter the classroom every day. Having taken classes in grammar, literature, Latin American History and Spanish History, I can confidently answer language and culture based questions that my students have. I even keep some of my old Siena textbooks in my classroom for reference. My students love hearing about my abroad experiences, and my kindergarten class absolutely loves the story of Don Quixote (the abridged, children's version of course)! The Spanish Department did a great job preparing me for this job, and I couldn't be more grateful for all of their help and guidance.
