Hi! I’m Courtney VanArsdale and thank you for taking a moment to get to know me! I have earned my BA in Spanish Linguistics from Rutgers University, a MA in Foreign Language Teaching from Universidad de Granada, Spain and another MA in Teaching and Learning of Spanish Language and Culture, Rutgers University, New Brunswick/Universidad de Salamanca, Spain. Subsequently, I teach Spanish levels 2 and 3 here at the high school along with levels 101 through 202 at Rowan College at Burlington County!
I am from a small town a few miles north of Columbus where I still reside! I like to ride my bike on the country roads and travel all over the world. I love to be a student and have never stopped studying; I just finished working on my second Master’s Degree and I’m not sure what I’ll start up next! I’ve been teaching for more than ten years I have returned “home” to NBC after I took a year off to work and teach in southern Spain. The other schools I have worked in were in Barcelona, Allentown and Princeton. My passion is encouraging cultural acceptance through language immersion and creating global citizens!
When not teaching, I enjoy spending time in the kitchen or outdoors and with my family and friends. I enjoy travel, reading, camping and listening to music/podcasts.
