Mr. Butler

I've been teaching at Western for 16 years. In that time I have come to feel that Western is like a second family to me, and Southwest Detroit is home. Thanks to everyone at Western International High School for this wonderful opportunity.

Ms. Coulibaly

Hello Western International High School students and families! My name is Molly Brown Coulibaly. I currently teach all levels of Spanish as a World Language. My favorite course is Advanced Placement Spanish Literature and Culture because reading takes me to those places where the language and culture are alive. I have studied a variety of subjects including enology, viticulture, and phlebotomy. I hold degrees in Secondary Modern Languages Education from the University of Cincinnati and Translation from the Graduate Program in Translation at the University of Puerto Rico. When I am not studying or reading, I am streaming satelite radio or programs and remodeling my home. During longer school breaks, I enjoy family time, cultural venues and outdoor activities such as swimming, sailing, power boating, skiing, and ice skating.

Ms. Padiernos

For years I have been turned off from pursuing a teaching career because of the lackluster exposure I've had in this field. Five generations of educators from both sides of my family, I knew that my legacy will find a way back to my heart. My 'let there be light' moments occurred as I happened upon brain based learning, multiple intelligences and interleaving. The extra challenges of teaching in 3 languages and promoting self-regulation & self monitoring behaviors, I found my lifelong challenge and passion-->shedding light to the real ME!
