¡Bienvenidos a Español!

I'm excited to be teaching your kids Spanish this year!  I have so many wonderful memories of learning Spanish in middle school, myself.  This year, I'm teaching 4th & 5th grade Spanish as part of the Elementary "Specials" rotation, as well as Level 1 & 2 to my middle school students.  At all levels, I strive to provide the students with daily opportunities to listen, speak , read and write in Spanish.  Students at all levels will access my class information via Schoology.  Schoology is a learning management system that allows students to see assignments, submit their work, participate in class discussions and communicate with me.  Looking forward to a great year together!  

Remote Learning Resources

I want to send out my hearfelt appreciation for you and your family as we embark on remote learning beginning on April 1st, 2020. I am excited to interact with you virtually!  But, if I'm being honest, I'm also pretty nervous and unclear about this whole new thing, and I promise to extend lots of grace your way and hope you'll do the same for me.  During this time, my middle school classes will use Seesaw to access all assignments and submit all work samples. Elementary students will be able to access a menu of Specials choices to select from (link coming soon) as well as additional resources in Seesaw.   If your student needs help, inspiration or someone to share in their learning experience, I am more than happy to connect with them on email, Seesaw or Zoom.
