About Sheri King

     My name is Sheri King and I am a Canton (OK) High School graduate.   My Spanish Education degree is from OSU, but I attended SWOSU for three years as a Biology major.  I have been teaching Spanish since 1988, but have taught Biology, Botany, and ELL along the way.  I have been a Waukomis Chief, a Drummond Bulldog, a Carnegie Wildcat, an Anadarko Warrior and a Weatherford Eagle.  In the year 2000 I was introduced to the TPRS® method (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling) created by Blaine Ray.  I was so impressed with its ability to break down the fear of foreign language that I use it to teach all my Spanish classes.  As methods evolve, I have added Comprehensible Input (CI) and Mike Peto’s ideas to my list of influences.

     After teaching Spanish for six years, I moved to Mexico with my husband.  The 4-year experience enhanced my ability to function in the Spanish language, influenced the way I cook and gave me experiences that I will treasure forever. 

     I hope my students learn a lot from me and are inspired to investigate cultures other than their own. I also want them to be able to use Spanish with confidence in places other than the classroom, no matter what their ability level.
