Gabbi Tomaselli – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- Raquel Klammer is a new LRHS Spanish teacher. Klammer teaches Spanish 1 and 2 and is also the adviser for Spanish Club.
Klammer was born in Argentina but lived in Brazil as a child. When Klammer turned 16 she lived in Germany and had to learn German. When she was 20, Klammer moved to the United States and learned English.
Klammer said, “I love languages, as they are a gateway to different people and getting to know their culture. They are always exciting and interesting.”
As a child, Klammer was always helping her classmates and would explain things to them.
“Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to teach and help others,” she said.
Klammer has been teaching for 12 years and graduated from Brigham Young University in Utah. After that, she taught high school for three years, middle school for one year, and college for eight years.
Klammer described her first day at LRHS as “nerve wracking but it was nice to be able to meet all my students.”
“I chose LRHS because it was a well-known, excellent school that had good academics along with nice staff and students,” said Klammer.
Moving forward, Klammer is excited about getting to know her students and building a connection with them. She added, “Seeing students flourish from the beginning to the end of the year is the best thing to see and experience.”
