¡Hola! ¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español! I am happy to welcome you to your Spanish class! 

My name is Tonya Snyder, and I am proud to be a Bonner Bronco!!  I am from Martinsville, Va, received a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish from Radford University, and my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Averett University. I have been teaching Spanish for 30 years. 😊 I am certified to teach PreK-12 and have previously taught high school, IB, and college-level Spanish. This will be my 3rd year at O. T. Bonner, and I am excited to be here!

I have a true passion for teaching the Spanish Language and Culture! I have been blessed to have experience traveling to Peru, Bolivia, Mexico, Spain, Panama, Guatemala, and  Nicaragua. I began my career teaching in Costa Rica, where I was an English teacher to English language learners. During my travels, I collected knowledge, experiences, and perspectives that I share with my students daily as I teach the Spanish language. I strive to create a community of learners that nurtures growth and exploration in a positive, fun, and upbeat environment. 

I look forward to our educational journey together!!
