Madame Tangel returned to the MPA faculty in 2019 after teaching here from 2001-2011. In the intervening years, she taught junior high Spanish and pursued an ESL endorsement. Mme. Tangel holds a B.A. in French and Spanish and a graduate degree in French, both from Illinois State University. At home, she enjoys reading, knitting, and learning Portuguese so she can converse with her grandson. She also plays the accordion in a local band known as the Grace Notes!
