¡Hola, mucho gusto! Hi, nice to meet you!

My name is Essia Redig and I will be teaching Spanish I and III at Eagan High School along with 9th grade AVID this year. I am originally from Hastings, Nebraska. I came to Minnesota to attend college and liked it so much I decided to stay.  I completed both my undergraduate and graduate work at Minnesota State University in Mankato, Minnesota. I have a Bachelor's degree in Spanish and Family Life and Child Development and a Master of Arts in Teaching.

I initially learned Spanish at the age of 6 when my family moved to Guadalajara, México. Three years later we returned to the US. I continued studying Spanish throughout my educational career, including studying abroad in Cuenca, Ecuador for a summer while attending MSU. When I am not in the classroom I enjoy spending time with my family, walking my dogs Ace and Frehley, rollerblading, reading, and coaching.
