Mary Kate Dvorak – Faculty Bio

Department: Foreign Language (Spanish)

Years at St. Mary's: 2 years

Years of Teaching ExperienceI have been teaching Spanish since 2000.  I have taught all levels, but mostly high school, which is my favorite level to teach.

Where Have you Taught Prior to Coming to SMHI taught for 6 years in the East Aurora School District, then I resigned to take care of my four children.  I also taught at The Aurora Waldorf High School, Immaculate Conception, Academy of Aurora and other after school programs.

HometownI am originally from East Aurora, though we lived in Chicago and San Francisco before moving back to WNY to raise kids.

Fun Facts: I love the outdoors, traveling, spending time with my family and friends.  My trip to Macchu Picchu in 2007 was one of the highlights of my life.  I clearly remember looking at the iconic picture of the ruins in my high school Spanish class, as a student, and thinking that someday I would see it in person.  I walked the Camino Inca for 4 days to reach the ruins and the entire journey absolutely surpassed my wildest dreams.  The experience was magical!
