• Dear Parents & Students,

    Welcome back from the holiday break!  I hope everyone took time to rest and relax because we are about to dive into World Language and use the language!  Remember that our district's goal as World Language teachers is to create a world in which culturally aware students engage as global citizens through proficient multilingual communication.   How do we plan to do that?  Students will participate and use the target language in class from the start!  It has been a great start for many of our students and I am so proud of them. 

    To be the best they can be, they will need to interpret reading and spoken Spanish, process active interpersonal conversational Spanish and be able to listen and present  longer more formal Spanish information.  We call these the three modes of language; interpretive, interpersonal and presentational Spanish. 

    I need to let you all know, during the spring semester, tutorials will be held before school starting at 8:15 AM and also after school until 4:45 PM daily.  I have been assigned lunch duty this semester and will no longer be available during the MegaLunch period from 12:40 - 1:40 PM daily. If the only time of day you can attend tutorials is MegaLunch, there is a Spanish teacher in the library daily to help with tutorials. 

    If you have any questions or concerns about Spanish, please reach out and let me know so we can work together toward your success!
