Greetings Tison Parents/Guardians & Students!
My name is Profesora Kym Ferrell and I am the Spanish teacher here at Tison Middle School! I teach both Spanish I and AP Spanish IV, and I am the TMS Cheer Coach. I am also a proud puppy mom to a Miniature Schnauzer named Sir Thaddeus Maximus Ferrell, but I call him "Max" for short. I attended Texas State University in San Marcos, TX (Eat 'em up Cats!), where I completed my B.A. and B.S. double majoring in Chemistry and Spanish with a minor in Healthcare Administration. This will be my third year in WISD at Tison, but I have been teaching for nearly 13 years and have previously worked in Dallas ISD and Crowley ISD.
I grew up as the child of an active duty military dad (a.k.a. an "Army Brat"), so I was born in Europe and have traveled and lived all over the world. While studying Spanish, I lived in Guanajuato, Mexico for two years, and I have visited Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and most recently Bogota and Cartagena, Colombia. Peru is the next stop on my journey!
I am excited about meeting you all, and I am looking forward to a fantastic year of learning and exploring the Spanish language and culture that the 2017-2018 school year will bring. Please subscribe to my teacher page and explore the links to my Spanish I & AP Spanish IV web pages, as well as the REMIND accounts for your/your student's class; I will frequently use them to provide additional information and resources throughout the year. Thanks for visiting.....It's a great day to be a ROO!
Profe. K. Ferrell
