Mrs. Lexsea Stickrod- K-12 Spanish
I grew up in Eldora, IA where I graduated from Eldora-New Providence High School. I then attended the University of Iowa for one year and transferred to the University of Northern Iowa where I completed a dual major in TESOL (Teaching English to speakers of other languages) and Spanish. While in college I studied abroad two times spending two months in Arica, Chile, where I took Spanish classes at the local university, and a month in China where I taught English to elementary students at a summer camp. After graduating in 2009, I landed my first teaching job in Wichita, KS where I taught middle school English as a second language for 4 1/2 years and coached volleyball for 3 years. I am thrilled to be starting another year as the PreK-12 Spanish teacher at Marquette. In Spanish class we primarily use the TPRS method in which we use stories to acquire the language. In addition to teaching PreK-12 Spanish, I am also the Junior High Volleyball coach and lead the Marquette Makers crafting club.
