Hi students! I received my Masters Degree from APSU. I have traveled overseas for 7 years visiting and exploring different cultures and languages. I am originally from Miami Florida and I have lived in Spain, Germany and Panama. I am looking forward to passing on the Spanish traditions and cultures of these countries sharing my experiences with the students. I hope you enjoy learning this rich language and understand the importance of learning another language. This is my 14th year at Northeast High School. It is great to be an eagle.

Overview of the Course:

This is a first semester beginning level course that will introduce the student to a variety of areas of language. In this course, the student will learn Spanish skills relating to listening, speaking, reading and writing through various interactive activities online and in class. Throughout the 4 units included in the course (Greetings, The Date, Weather, Time, and Colors), students will learn to express themselves using an increasing vocabulary, present-tense verbs, articles and adjectives. Culture from various Latin American countries is also incorporated into the course to help the student learn about the Spanish speaking world and their people, geographical locations and histories.

 Homework:  You will be able to work on work during class time. If you do not finish, you will take it home to complete. Late homework will not be accepted.

Absences: It is your responsibility to make up any missing work. *If you are absent on a review day, this does not excuse you from a test or quiz. You will take the test the day it is given. I give about a week notice on upcoming tests. If you are absent for a test or quiz, it is your responsibility to make it up.

Notebook checks: Students will present notebook to the teacher for a grade. All students are responsible for bringing notebook to class every meeting day.
