Ms. Kayla Watson is one of the two new Spanish teachers. She originally is from Abingdon, Va., and attended James Madison University to receive her Bachelor’s Degree, Virginia Tech University for her Master’s Degree, and the University of Maryland for her Doctorate’s Degree.
Ms. Watson’s desire to teach Spanish began when she took a literature class on human rights violations and later decided to live in Peru for a few months. There, she became interested with the Spanish language.
She taught for four years at the university level and for four summers, she has taught in the Upward Bound Program.
Ms. Watson spends her free time being an “adrenaline junky,” doing activities such as rock climbing and hiking and also, playing with her dog, Dilly.
