Bio

About Ms. Meznar 

¡Hola!  Bonjour!  I was born in Brazil and spent the next 16 years moving around to Spanish and French-speaking countries due to my father's career as Foreign Service Officer with the US State Department.  I've lived in Brazil, Panama, Spain, Belgium, and Nicaragua, and finally moved to the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan when I was in 11th grade.  I have been living in the Chattanooga area since 2011 and now make my home in Red Bank.

The longer I lived in the US, the more I realized how fortunate I was to know two foreign languages.  I didn't want to let them go to waste, so I decided to major in Spanish and French in college.  While in college, I realized I had an even greater passion for teaching languages, not just speaking them.  So I went on to earn my Master of Arts in Teaching right after earning my BA and have been teaching ever since.  This will be my third year at SMMHS.
