Welcome to Spanish II at Lake Shore High School.
My name is Laura Kowal. This is my 16th year teaching Spanish
and French. I have degrees in French Language and Linguistics, Curriculum
Design, and certifications in Spanish and grades Kindergarten-12 Second Language Education.
I have studied abroad in Grenoble, France and Cuernavaca, Mexico. I have
also taught Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) in Pulawy, Poland and Jamestown, New York. In the past,
I have done adoption programs with Baker Victory Services and FANA of
My goal is to make language learning as real-life as possible. I hope to promote
an understanding of the Hispanic world and cultures and to encourage students to
love the language.
