My name is Mr. Ritschard and I am excited for this opportunity to teach Spanish at Rawlins High School. I am originally from Lakewood, Colorado but lived in Idaho while going to school. I graduated from BYU Idaho with a Bachelor's in Spanish Education and a minor in TESOL education. I learned Spanish when I lived in Mexico for two years. Teaching Spanish has become a passion of mine. I love to see students realize their potential in learning a new language and the opportunities that arise for them in the future because of their bilingual skills. I am looking forward to working with each and every student that walks through the door of my classroom. Learning a new language can be hard but I know that with determination anything is possible.
