Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Sydney Dismukes (formerly Sydney Sneed), and I am thrilled to begin my second year teaching Spanish at Mountain Brook Junior High. I graduated with honors from Auburn University with a B.A. in Spanish. I also studied at the Universidad Nebrija in Madrid, Spain, and worked for many years as a tutor and translator for various non-profit organizations benefitting Hispanic immigrants.
As a Spanish teacher, my goal is to provide students with a well-rounded education that allows them to develop the four ACTFL communication skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Additionally, I hope to instill in each student a spirit of understanding and respect for the rich Hispanic culture that is quickly becoming an integral part of our American society.
Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns! I am looking forward to an engaging, challenging, and exciting year together!
