Ms. Archibald Mora (Señora Mora)
I was born and raised in the border town of El Paso in a bilingual home. As I child, my family traveled often to Mexico visit family, and I was always fascinated by my maternal Hispanic culture. After studying abroad in both Mexico and Spain, I graduated from Southwestern University with a degree in Women’s Studies and English in 1995. I discovered my passion for teaching as a Peace Corps Volunteer in El Salvador (1998-2001), and since then have taught English, Spanish, English as a Second Language, and Bilingual Education. I spent two semesters teaching Spanish and English for the Traveling School, traveling through Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia with 15 high school aged girls. I received my Master’s Degree in English Education from Boise State University, and I am a proud Boise State Writing Project fellow. Most recently I taught Spanish and English in the Boise School District. I moved to Hailey in July of 2014 with my husband Matt, children Ray and Alicia, and my kitty Lola Bunny. I am thrilled to be teaching Spanish at the WRMS. When not working, I can usually be found on a playground or on the bike path with my two children Ray and Alicia. When I have free time again someday, I really hope to go on a date with my husband, read a book for pleasure, ski, and do more yoga.
