Ms. Nancy Tristan

Hola! My name is Nancy Tristan and I will be teaching Advanced Spanish Honors 2 & 3 and Spanish 4 AP. I am originally from Chicago, Illinois but raised in Mexico. 

I started teaching foreign languages since 1996 in the University of San Luis Potosí, Mexico. I have been in LISD for 14 years and this will be my 5th year in Arbor Creek Middle School. 

I graduated from the Instituto Tecnologico de Matehuala, S.L.P. (Mexico) with a Bachelor Degree in Industrial Engineering in Production and I am certified as an Overseas Teachers of English from the University of Cambridge.

I love to teach languages. I want to inspire my students to learn Spanish. My goal is to prepare students to become  global learners. As we move further into the age of globalization, Spanish speakers will undoubtedly become even more valuable to Texas Businesses and Public institutions, so they need to be prepared and ready for the challenges in the future. 

 I am looking forward to get to know all of you and have a GREAT year at ACMS!  Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or concerns.
