Mrs. Clara Musselman

     While I have taught in public schools in Austin and Plano for ten years—in addition to teaching English as a Foreign Language for two years in Ecuador, I am truly thrilled to start my first year teaching Spanish 1 here at Renner Middle School.  We will play games, sing songs and chat a whole lot about our lives.  Yes, we will have fun, but we will work hard too.  My goal is for students to leave my class with excellent pronunciation and conversation skills, a passion for the Spanish language and Hispanic cultures and the view that mistakes are welcome as long as they are trying.

     Outside of school, my husband and I have three kids Jose (6 years old), Felipe (4 years old) and Camila (1 year old) who keep my life interesting.  Whether we are wading in Spring Creek, baking muffins in the kitchen or dancing to Latin pop music in the living room, I love that my kids help me see everything through their lens of wonder. 

     I know that this year is going to be amazing, filled with laughter, new relationships and, of course, lots of learning.  If your child is in my class, please reach out if you have any questions or suggestions.  😊
