Staff Member: Mrs. Elaina Spencer, Spanish
Mrs. Elaina Spencer, Spanish
Elaina joined the St. Anthony teaching staff in November of 2011. She currently teaches grades 5th through 8th. Elaina majored in Spanish at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and received her teaching certificate through Cardinal Stritch University. She understands that learning a second language can be a bit of a challenge, so she incorporates as many hands-on activities as possible in the classroom. Pictionary and Charades are an excellent way to review material at the end of each class and the students love playing these games!! During grammar lessons, Elaina loves when the children have the “ah ha” moment and the concept becomes a bit more clear to the students.
In her free time, Elaina loves working out and running. She will be running her first half marathon on May 3rd, so she is busy training for this!! She enjoys spending time with her family, her boyfriend, and their three cats and one dog.
