Miss Wood loves to travel and believes her journeys were key to sharpening her Spanish. During college, she went on two immersion trips (Santiago, Chile and Buenos Aires, Argentina) and taught English as a Second Language in Callao, Peru. She earned a B.S. in World Languages: Spanish, K-12 from Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN in 2018. Post-graduation, the travel bug bit again, so Miss Wood spent October 2018 through July 2019 exploring the USA and even took a quick trip to Ireland. Her favorite stops included Nashville, TN, Manitowoc, WI, Mackinac Island, MI and Galway, Ireland. She is thrilled to start her teaching career as part of the supportive and fun RTMS community! She hopes to ignite a love for culture, diversity and exploration in her students.
