¡Hola!  My name is Ann Baus.  I teach Spanish I and II at Otis-Bison High School, and I also oversee the Virtual Learning Classes (VLC) and the English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program.  In addition, I have taught a variety of science classes in my 25+ of teaching and served as the director of Barton County Academy.


I have a Bachelor of Arts In Biology and Spanish from McPherson College and a Master of Science in Developmental Plant Genetics from Oklahoma State University.  


I am married and have three daughters, two sons-in-law, a granddaughter and two grandsons!


In my spare time, I like to read, write, garden, travel (especially to Spanish-speaking countries), take pictures and spend time with my family!
