¡Hola! My name is Lee Pecheone and I began teaching in New Hartford in 2010. I have over twenty years of teaching experience and have taught all levels of Spanish. Previously I taught at Hamilton Central School and Whitesboro High School.I earned my B.A. in Spanish at SUNY Oswego and my M.A. at SUNY Albany where I also taught two sections of undergraduate Spanish. I belong to several professional organizations such as NYSAFLT (N.Y.S. Association of Foreign Language Teachers), ACTFL (American Council of Teachers of Foreign Languages), and NYSUT (N.Y.S. United Teachers).I grew up in New Hartford and attended school here, but I lived in Chile for one year and in Puerto Rico for a semester in college. I have also taken two student groups to Costa Rica for eco-adventures!I am a co-advisor of The World Language Club with Mrs. Campbell and we welcome all modern language students to join! The club's activities all have international flair and the culture of many countries is explored.Currently I am living in Clinton with my husband, son and a crazy Wheaten Terrier named Jackso. We like to go to The Adirondacks whenever we can to hike and enjoy the lakes.
