Kerae Joonsar teaches all levels of Spanish at Osborne High School in Marietta, Georgia. She was born in Washington, D.C., and attended the University of Maryland Baltimore County. Karae had an opportunity to study abroad in Mexico City, Mexico, and fell in love with the Spanish language and culture. Most of her AP students are native Spanish speakers, and she is always searching for engaging, culturally relevant experiences where students can connect learning experiences to their culture. Her ultimate goal as a Spanish teacher is to help her students develop confidence and identity that will last far beyond their high school years.
