Señora Lindsay is the newest member of the Spanish department. She teaches both Spanish I and Spanish II.
Elizabeth Lindsay is originally from Asheville, NC, but has resided in Raleigh for a few years. She is no stranger to the Raleigh area, having received her Bachelor’s degree from North Carolina State University.
After college, Lindsay taught in Virginia for two years. She then taught at West Lake Middle School in Apex, NC. Lindsay went on to get her Masters’ Degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
Lindsay is a strong proponent of collaboration and group work. “The goal is for students to be able to go out into the world and to speak Spanish to a native speaker; so the only way to do that is to practice speaking as much as possible in class, so we do a lot of partner activities, so that students are speaking to each other in Spanish so that they are comfortable in the classroom with a teacher correcting them, and then they are able to use that knowledge out in the real world,” Lindsay explained.
Baldwin Bell, sophomore, is in Lindsay’s Spanish II class. “We have a really good time, we learn a lot,” he said, “She checks papers fast, which we really like so we get our tests graded quickly, which motivates me to do better,” he explained.
Lindsay is happy to be a member of the Pride and has found the students and staff welcoming. “I’ve always heard really good things about Leesville,” she said. “It’s a great school, there’s super high standards for students.”
