Meet Ms. Marta!

Hello students and families,


My name is Ms. Marta and I am the Spanish teacher for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at Olson Middle School.

I am pleased to be your child’s Spanish teacher this year. I am very interested in having your support and working as a team with your family in order to have a very successful school year.

I am a native Spanish speaker from Spain, and I am very proud to teach my language and my culture to your child. This is my third year working here at Olson, and I am very excited to have your student in my class this year. I have a Masters in Teaching from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota and a B.A. in History from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid in Spain. Living in different countries and learning the language, have given me a better understanding of the process of teaching a foreign language. I take advantage of my personal experience in order to implement my teaching methods.  

I understand that every child has different strengths and weaknesses in their learning process. Therefore I am committed to having differentiated instruction in my class with a variety of opportunities for my students’ to achieve their goals. Nevertheless, learning a language involves repetition, constant work, and memorization skills.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I will try to respond to you as soon as possible.


¡Muchas Gracias!
