The Hartsbrook School

Michelle Huber, BA

High School Spanish

Michelle Huber’s love and passion for Spanish began during an exchange trip to Spain in 11th grade while attending Amherst Regional High School. From that moment she made it a life goal to become fluent in Spanish. She took a gap year before attending Sarah Lawrence College to travel and volunteer in Argentina. In college she continued pursuing the language by studying a semester abroad in Cuba and working in the summers at Middlebury’s summer language immersion programs for high school students. She also used vacations to visit Guatemala, Colombia, Peru and Mexico. After graduating, she became a Spanish teaching fellow, and later full time teacher at the Noble and Greenough School in Dedham, MA. After teaching for several years, she decided to take a year to explore her other passions of dance, the healing arts, meditation, communication, sustainability, performance, travel and community living abroad. Her year took her to Germany, Israel, Spain and France and ended with many new perspectives and a desire to settle down in the Pioneer Valley. She is very excited to be joining the very warm and welcoming Hartsbrook community.
