Mrs. McLean (Pierson)
¡Hola! Me llamo Morgan McLean (née Pierson), and I am 27 years-young!
This is my fifth year teaching both Spanish 1B and Spanish 2 here at East MS. I graduated from MSU (GO GREEN!) in May, 2014 with a B.A. in English and a Spanish minor. During my undergrad, I was lucky enough to have studied abroad in the beautiful city of Valencia, Spain. While there, I lived with a host-family, attended school 5 days/week, and traveled with my MSU companions on weekends. Some of my most memorable trips include San Fermín (Running of the Bulls) in Pamplona, visiting el Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, and a weekend-tour around Rome.
I am BEYOND passionate about language and culture and LOVE sharing my enthusiasm in the classrom every single day. I enjoy reading, music, and especially food. I also love to laugh and to make others laugh with me.
My teaching philosophy is rooted in the well-being of my students; I believe in building relationships before working on academics, and I cannot stress enough just how much I love my job. I feel so fortunate to be doing what I love most in this wonderful community.
