Ms. Paula Williams – Spanish A-B

I started teaching Spanish in the Dickinson Public School district in 2013. Before that I taught ITV (kinda like ʺSkypeʺ style) in the South Heart School district. I graduated from DHS and DSU and the Fall 2017 begins my 10th year as an educator. I have a degree in Psychology as well and that often finds its way in to my Spanish classroom. I live to learn! I have always loved school and now it is just so much better because I fill my heart each school day with wonderful students with amazing personalities. I stand by the motto ʺBuild a better youʺ. There is no one that can replace you and no one that matters more than yourself. Grow from your education and life experiences and I hope that in my classroom my students will see that I am always trying to build a better me. I enjoy teaching so much but also occupy my time with my 6th grade daughter, my roller derby league, and running part of the show for the community Alive @ 5 event with the Odd Fellows Lodge.

When you need something to believe in, start with YOURSELF.
