Jaimie Hudson '12
Before she graduated from Heidelberg, Jamimie already found a job teaching Spanish at Perkins High School in Sandusky, Ohio. She is currently teaching Spanish II as well as an 8th grade Spanish class.
"Heidelberg helped prepare me for this job by most importantly, making me study abroad! I can’t imagine being able to better my Spanish without being immersed in the language itself - not to mention I learned so many things about the Mexican culture. This knowledge not only helps me teach the language more efficiently, but also gives me the opportunity to talk about a culture that many of my students haven’t experienced themselves. It ended up being one of the most rewarding and important experiences of my life."
"I believe my employer saw that I had received an education that would help me teach in a relevant and exciting new way. Schools are looking for teachers that know the current and most effective ways of teaching, and I think that the Heidelberg Education program & Dr. Lepeley definitely make sure their students know those ways of teaching!"

"Heidelberg is an exceptional place that offers many opportunities for cultural immersion and studying abroad, Heidelberg provides great locations, helpful scheduling with degree requirements, and knowledgeable professors which makes studying abroad a beneficial opportunity!"
Jenna plans to attend Univeristy of New Mexico for a MA in Linguistics next fall. She'll continue right onto a PhD, most likely in internet defense and cyber security.
