Dr. Jan M. Zuehlke

My vision is to encourage and inspire students to use the Spanish language and cultural skills acquired in class to become future architects of social and cultural bridges in the society they choose to live in.

This is my sixth year teaching Spanish at Daniel Boone.  Before becoming a teacher I was a Senior Marketing Representative in the business world.  I traveled all over the world with my career establishing new markets and maintaining relationships for various companies.  I have traveled to Mexico, Asia, Europe and Latin America.  During my numerous international travels, I had the chance to immerse myself in their cultures and languages.  Sharing my experiences with students provides them the chance to understand the imporatnce of langauges and cultures around the world.

  • Spanish is your ticket to the world.  When you speak a different language, you can travel to places you have only read about, the globe becomes your job market, and you can communicate with people whose lives are completely different from yours!  Together, we will journey through lots of vocabulary and grammar topics, take a pause at interesting cultural places, and SPEAK, READ, and WRITE lots of Spanish!
