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 is a Stevenson Spartan. 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 being more connected through technology, it is even 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.
Notes and homework assignments will be posted on Google Classroom, but please double check with me if you are absent to make sure that it is updated. The classroom policies and expectations are also posted on Google Classroom. Email me if you have any questions.
In addition to teaching, I am also the SHS World Language Department Chair and High School Figure Skating Sponsor.
