Ms. Katharine Isbell
I love Spanish and all things Spanish, but originally I started out teaching English as a Second Language and taught English all over the world for about 20 years: Colombia, Indonesia, Thailand and Japan. When I returned to the US, I started teaching Spanish and I’ve been teaching all levels of Spanish in Wylie ISD for almost 20 years. I’m excited to teach a section of Dual Credit Spanish with Collin College.
Another passion of mine is yoga. I am a certified yoga instructor and teach two evenings a week at the Wylie Rec Center. I also teach Aerial Yoga which uses silks to help support and maintain the poses in Rockwall.
I also love to travel and have visited many Spanish speaking countries. I have traveled with W.E. students to Costa Rica for a language immersion trip and Ecuador for a service trip.
I have a beautiful grown daughter who lives in Boston with her husband and I have a cute chihuahua, Kitsune, who has her own Instagram page.
