Mrs. Joan Setka

Mrs. Setka has taught English to juniors and seniors for over 15 years. Her goal is to teach students to be self-directed and successful students and citizens.

When she is not teaching English, she is engaged in her favorite activities. These activities include working with fiber: cleaning sheep fleeces, spinning, dyeing, knitting, and weaving; gardening, hiking with her dogs, and playing soccer.

She especially loves to travel; either with a book, on a road trip, or to other countries. So far, the list of places visited includes: England, France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, the Netherland,  and Thailand.
