Hello My Name Is...

Sra. Hadjian (Ha-G-On)

Un poco sobre

I am the Upper School Spanish Teacher. I started this role as of the school year 2019. I continue to have great plans and ideas to keep your students engaged and learning the language of Spanish and the culture that it brings.

I received my Master’s in Education, Foreign Language Emphasis on Spanish K-12 at Rockhurst University. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Language Arts Foreign Language from University of Missouri - Kansas City. The area of focus for my Undergraduate degree was Spanish and Criminal Justice.

Previous to coming to UA, I worked for the Johnson County Department of Corrections. My goal was to encourage the youth that there was more positive in the world to experience, life is what you make it, and every human has a purpose on this earth. We have to respect and genuinely love each other. Ultimately, I want, like Miss America, peace and love in this world. I believe through true communication, this can happen. We have to hear and be heard. This is why I believe studying foreign languages are beneficial to our development as a whole. While working in Corrections I took part in facilitating evidence based practice programming and utilizing the positive behavior supports systems. I believe in reinforcing positive behaviors and focusing on the good.

I bring with me my own experiences growing up and those of the youth I served. I will encourage youth to appreciate themselves, others, and the world. Through our exploration of the Spanish Language we will begin to see the world is a very big place, populated with many differences. Through education of said differences, we will learn to communicate better with one another and ultimately we can begin to accept one another. Through acceptance, comes peace and love.  I believe in the bigger picture of education and the holistic approach of viewing students as humans with many facets to explore, reach, and teach to better their futures and the entire community’s future.
