Mrs. Hellen Eichler
¡Hola chicos y chicas! ¿Qué tal?
My name is Hellen Eichler and I am originally from Venezuela, South America. I have lived in the United States for thirteen years. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Education: Spanish and English as Foreign Languages, in January 2005, and came to the United States in August of the same year. I first came to the US as an exchange teacher. I worked in Columbia, SC for six years teaching elementary students and moved to Aiken in 2011 when I got married to my wonderful husband. My husband and I love sports: biking, hiking, swimming, running, and dancing salsa of course! In the summer of 2015 our beautiful daughter Adi was born and in the summer of 2017 our son Richie was born.
Coming to the US has been a wonderful experience. I truly believe it’s been a great journey living and teaching about my language and culture here in South Carolina. Every year has been exciting and challenging at the same time. This was the first year I taught AP Spanish Language and Culture. It was a very demanding course but I am glad I taught it since I learned so much. I hope my students did too. I will also be teaching AP Spanish this year 2019-20. I am extremely excited to continue teaching such an advanced level. I will be teaching Spanish 3 classes which will get you prepared should you want to move forward and into the AP class in the future. I am looking forward to an excellent year with a lot of success and celebrations in our Spanish class.
