World and Classical Languages


Heidi Sabean

At the age of five, while on a field trip, I heard Spanish spoken for the very first time and I was hooked! I knew that day that I would become a Spanish teacher. I attended the University of New Hampshire, spent my junior year in Granada, Spain and after graduation, started my Master’s degree at the Universidad de Salamanca. In 1994, I received my Master’s degree in Spanish Literature, Spanish Linguistics and the Methodologies of Teaching Foreign Language and dove into teaching middle school, high school and college level classes.

Learning Spanish as an English speaker has provided me with a unique perspective on second language acquisition. I want all of my students to know that I genuinely care about their success and I will enthusiastically support and encourage them to ask questions, take risks and discover all they can about the language and culture of the Spanish speaking world. I fully believe that Learning another language means never being worlds apart.I have lived in Tampa for many years now, but I am a New Englander at heart…Go Red Sox! I enjoy being outdoors, fishing, eating great food (mostly chocolate) and spending time with my two boys, Ben and Henry.
