Mrs. Krista Himes-Shingleton

Hola! Me llamo Señora Himes-Shingleton y soy profesora de Español en el colegio Davidson Escuela de las Bellas Artes. (My name is Señora Himes-Shingleton and I am the Spanish teacher at Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School).

I am a graduate of Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from Mercer University, my Master of Arts in TESOL from the University of Mississippi and my Education Specialist degree in the teaching of Foreign Languages from Auburn University. This is my 9th year at Davidson.  Prior to working at Davidson, I taught Spanish in both Burke and Columbia County School Systems.  

I have studied Spanish at the following institutes: The Center for Cross-Cultural Studies, Seville, Spain; El Centro Academia Latino Americano de Ecuador, Quito, Ecuador; Universidad Católica, Lima, Peru, and  The Center for Bilingual Multi-Cultural Studies, Cuernavaca, Mexico.  In 2015 I received a travel award from the Southern Conference on Language Teaching to study at the Cemanahuac Educational Community in Cuernavaca, Mexico.  

I love traveling and interacting with Spanish speakers. In addition to travel abroad experiences, I also regularly attend foreign language education conferences and workshops such as FLAG (Foreign Language Association of Georgia), FLAIR (Foreign Language Association for International Rapport), and SCOLT (Southern Conference on Language Teaching). 

Professionally, I am a member of FLAG and AATSP (Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese). I am also a member of the Augusta Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and Jack and Jill of America, Augusta Chapter.  
I enjoy reading, shopping, traveling, spending time with my family, watching telenovelas, and inspiring young minds to fall in love with Spanish!
