A little about Sra. Jennifer Friedman...









¡Hola amigos!  I am so excited to be joining the amazing Awtrey Middle School community!  I am a first generation American who grew up in a Spanish speaking household.  Both of my parents were born in Cuba and came to America as political exiles in the early 1960s.  Spanish was my first language and I learned how to speak English by watching shows like Electric Company and Sesame Street.  My family moved to Roswell when I was 8 years old so I consider myself to be a southerner with Cuban heritage.  The same year we moved to Roswell, I began taking painting classes and thus began my lifelong passion for art.  I have worked as a professional fine artist for 10 years selling my paintings through galleries and art shows.  I graduated from Roswell High School and the University of Georgia (GO DAWGS!!!) where I majored in English and minored in Spanish.  I still live in Roswell with my two sons, Henry and Charlie, a dog named Billie, and a cat named D'jango.  In my spare time I love to read, go to concerts, listen to music and podcasts, hike with my kids and dog, paint, exercise and travel.  I can't wait to meet my students and get started on exploring the Spanish language and rich cultures of the Spanish speaking world.
