           ¡Hola! My name is Renee Pinacchio and I teach 6th/7th grade Exploratory Spanish at Brooke Middle school. I graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville where I received both of my degrees. I also studied Spanish at West Liberty College and at the University of Guanajuanto, Mexico. Before coming to Wellsburg Middle, I taught 4 years of high school Spanish in Bridgeport, Ohio.  I taught 8th grade exploratory Spanish as well as Spanish levels I, II, III, and IV. I also was the director of the Spanish Club and Spanish Honor Society. Before this, I taught grades K-8 Spanish in a private school in PA.  In addition to teaching Spanish, I taught two years as a full-time fourth grade teacher in Bridgeport, Oh. I also taught  two years as a full-time k-4 teacher in a private school, and was a substitute for Brooke and Jefferson Counties when I first started my teaching career. All together I have been teaching for 23 years.

 

I have many other experiences working and volunteering with children as well. For example, I served as a youth leader for my church for 10 years teaching ages 12-18. I also served as a summer camp director, children´s puppet ministry, nursery worker, and owned my own in-home daycare.

*I grew up in Orlando, Florida and then moved to West Virginia when I was 17. 

*My childhood best friend was from Cuba.

*I have been married for 23 years and have two children. Our son is 23 and our daughter is 8.
