¡Bienvenidos a todos!
My name is Michael Allred. I am happy to be back at Lovejoy this year! I will be teaching Spanish 3 Pre-AP and Spanish IV AP Language. I am originally from Plano, TX and have lived in Spain and France. I love to travel and return periodically to Japan and Wyoming to visit my family. I have been teaching in different capacities for eleven years. My passion is teaching and learning languages. Right now, I am learning Catalán and improving my German.
