Mrs. Christy McGovern

I’m excited to start my fourth year teaching Spanish at St. Joseph School. This is my fifteenth
year as an educator. I became enamored with the Spanish language and culture while studying
abroad in Cuernavaca, Mexico and doing graduate work at The University of Madrid,
Complutence, Spain. Learning a new language opens up the windows of opportunity in the
world. I’m thrilled to teach a subject matter I love. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time
with my family. I have four sons. We all like spending time outdoors with our pets and playing
sports. I am a tennis enthusiast and a reader. I also love to cook and garden. We are going to
learn so many great things this year, and I am looking forward to every minute of it! Orale!
