The Georgetown Spanish Academy is directed by Patricia (Patti) van Swelm who after working many years as a bilingual teacher saw the need for the Georgetown community to have its own Spanish Immersion School. Patti has extensive and high quality experiences with students in the Georgetown & Round Rock Independent School Districts. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and International Studies from Midwestern State University, and went further to study History of WWII at Kings College in London, UK. She then completed a Master’s degree in International Relations from Troy University. After spending years in Spain gaining invaluable educational and professional experiences, Patti came back home to Texas and obtained her Texas Teaching Certificate in Early Childhood through 4th grade. She participated in a Texas grant that allowed her to further her education in early childhood and child development. With many years of experience in Dual Language and Bilingual Education, true passion for bilingualism and biliteracy, and true love for children, Patti is implementing and nurturing the mission of the Georgetown Spanish Academy.
