Hello! Hola! Soy Tishanna McClure. I am Tishanna McClure and this will be my 16th year teaching. I graduated from Kennesaw State University in 2002 with a BS in Foreign Language Education-Spanish and from Lesley University with a MA in Technology Education in 2008. I lived in Oaxaca, Mexico and studied at the Instituto Cultural Benito Juarez during my junior year of college. I have visited various countries including Spain, Portugal, France and the Cayman Islands. I speak Spanish, French  and English along with being literate in Italian and Portuguese. I love languages and language studies therefore I have also studied Greek, German, Chinese, Hebrew, Japanese and Arabic. My accolades include being a GHP participant in Spanish and later an interviewer for the program; Outstanding Student Teacher in Foreign Language, Teacher of the Year, and president of Sigma Delta Pi (an Academic Greek society for Spanish). I was also one of 30 teachers chosen from the state of GA to be involved with the Costa Rican Environmental Program with the University of GA. In 2016 I was announced as Kennesaw State University's Distinguished Alumna of the Year for the Department of Foreign Languages in the College of Humanities. I am highly qualified to teach P-12 Spanish in GA, FL and TN. I am ESOL and Gifted endorsed along with being AP Spanish language certified. I am a member of AATSP, ACTFL, GAE, TEA & NEA so that I am able to stay abreast of all new pedagogy and teaching methodologies. I regularly check the Real Academia Española to check common vocabulary use and acceptable grammar to ensure proper academic progress for my students.

Follow the 2015/2016 student-made Instagram account @chs.spanish.2016 to learn some basic words in Spanish if you would like to learn Spanish yourself. It is modeled after the IG account @daily.spanish.word, which is another wonderful resource.
