Dear Parents and Students,
My name is Miss Ranta and this is my fourth year teaching at Mountain Range High School. I am excited for a fun year of teaching Spanish I, II and AP. I’m extremely passionate about the Spanish language and culture and have spent the last 8 years of my life, off and on, traveling to Spanish speaking countries to learn the language and absorb the culture. While I’m originally from Telluride, Colorado, I attended the University of California at Santa Barbara where I studied Sociology and Spanish and spent my junior year abroad living in Madrid, Spain. This experience was very gratifying, eye opening, and truly excited me about the language. After college I lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina and taught English while I immersed myself in the culture, and learned a new dialect of the Spanish language. I really enjoy working with students, and love the Spanish language and want to share my knowledge, experience and passion with the students so that they too may enrich their lives and be able to communicate while using the Spanish language. I completed the University of Colorado Denver’s teacher licensure program for Urban Education and am now working toward my Master's in Educational Theory and Practice at Arkansas State University.
Being from Colorado I love hiking, biking, camping, snowboarding and anything that has to do with the outdoors. I look forward to a great school year!
