Welcome! I have the honor of teaching Spanish to the amazing students at Southern Elementary School. In addition to this website, I also maintain a class Google Doc, which can be found at tinyurl.com/sespn (no spaces). My goal is to make Spanish as comprehensible, relevant, and engaging as possible.
Many parents ask what they can do to help their children with Spanish. The most important thing is to be supportive of learning Spanish and to encourage learning and practicing it. My Google Doc lists what students learn each week, resources that were used during class, and extra resources to further explore, learn, and practice.
Students who put forth good effort and follow class expectations will be successful in my class. A link to these expectations can be found in my Google Doc. Students and parents should understand that this is a low-frequency exploratory class; although students will hopefully learn or strengthen a few words, phrases, or concepts every time they see me, fluency is not expected. However, they will have a head start in middle school compared to students who have never been exposed to Spanish.
