¡Hola! My name is Señora Holwerda and I am so excited to be teaching Spanish at J.R. Watson. I earned my teaching license from IPFW and I received a Spanish minor at Hope College in Holland, MI. I am so fortunate to be able to be teaching Spanish at the elementary level in the mornings and at the high school level in the afternoons at DeKalb High School. I love teaching a foreign language because the students are learning something completely new and exciting and they are so enthusiastic and eager to share what they have learned with others.
