Mrs. Maureen McAlinden
Welcome to my website. I have been teaching Spanish in Livonia since 1992. Livonia Public Schools are very special to me as my husband graduated from Stevenson H.S. (many years ago ) and 2 of my daughters graduated from Stevenson. My youngest daughter will be a Stevenson Spartan in the near future. I am proud to be a part of a school district that works with the community to develop a curriculum that challenges students and works to prepare them for the future. With the world constantly becoming more connected through technology, it is more and more important for our students to develop an understanding of different cultures and languages. Even the name of our language department has changed from Foreign Languages to World Languages.
My training includes a B.A. degree from Michigan State (GO GREEN ) and an M.A. from Eastern Michigan University. I have traveled to Spain, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Costa Rica and have gained a lot of cultural knowledge from first-hand experience.
I am looking forward to working with your son/ daughter this year. Please e-mail me with any questions or concerns. I prefer that students ask for extra help at the beginning of the semester so that they don't fall too far behind.
In addition to teaching, I am also the High School Figure Skating Sponsor and World Language Department Chair.
