My name is Machaella Fogarty and I am in my 18th year of teaching Spanish.  

I taught Spanish 1-2, 3-4, and 5-6 honors at Omaha Northwest High School for 5 years. I moved to Westside and taught for 2 years. Then I moved to Bellevue. My 1st year in Bellevue, I traveled between Bellevue East and Bellevue West. I taught at Bellevue East for a few years then I permanently moved to West where I am currently teaching. I teach all 4-grade levels, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th.


I have a double major in Elementary Education (K-6th) and Spanish 7-12th.

I have a Masters in Instructional Technology.

+36 in Education.

Summer of 2013 I had an amazing opportunity to teach elementary Spanish in summer school at Bellevue Elementary. I am looking forward to another summer of teaching elementary Spanish.

I had the opportunity to study in Cuernavaca, México through the University of Nebraska at Omaha. It was a wonderful experience! I believe one of the best ways to learn another language is to submerge oneself into the language and culture! My experience has given me hands on teaching in my classroom. I can share a piece of México- the language and the culture with my students.

I am always asked how I became interested in Spanish. My aunt Peggy, my father's youngest sister, married a man named Raúl from México. Since I have been a little girl my uncle Raul has spoken to me in Spanish. I have been to his hometown, Guadalajara, several times. With all of these opportunities I fell in love with the Spanish language.

I love teaching Spanish and I love being a T-Bird!
