Former Fulda resident, Brittany Baerenwald, spent the entire month of June in Peru. A just-for-fun vacation, she also studied the Spanish language while traveling.

“I went to Peru just for fun and also to study Spanish. I studied Spanish in college, but have forgotten a lot of it because I don't use it regularly.” Baerenwald shared. “I have many Spanish speaking students and families at my current school so I wanted to brush up on the language so that I could better connect and communicate with them.”

Baerenwald is a fifth grade teacher at Sand Creek Elementary School in Colorado Springs, Colorado. A 2006 graduate of Fulda High School, Baerenwald attended Concordia College. After graduating from Concordia in 2010, she joined Teach for America and began working as a 6th grade teacher in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
