Penny Dean


I have been teaching at HGHS since 1999. I earned my Bachelor's degree from the University of North Alabama and my Master's degree from Auburn University. As part of my undergraduate and graduate work, I have studied abroad in Spain and Mexico. The World Languages Department tries to offer a trip to target language countries on a rotational basis with other departments at our school; I have traveled with students to Spain, Costa Rica, Italy, and France.

Please contact me directly for information about our next trip. In addition to my teaching duties, I am a sponsor for Prom and Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica.

Outside of school, my interests include travel, reading, anything on the water, attending events in support of my 3 stepsons (UA, UAH, and MCHS) and seeing what the world looks like through the eyes of my 8 year-old son, who is named after Super Man (Clark, not Kal-El).
