Dear JMS friends, family and students,
¡BIENVENIDOS a la clase de Español! WELCOME to the Spanish class! I want to extend a warm welcome to you and your child. I am excited to be to be his/her teacher. I am very committed to encourage and nurture my students’ interest for the Spanish language and the Spanish culture. Spanish is the second most spoken language in the United States and the skills the student acquires in this course are important no matter what educational/career paths he/she chooses.
I graduated from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia and also The University of Guadalajara in Jalisco, México. I have B.A. in Spanish language and literature, and have been a professional educator for three years. This is my first year at Jarrell Middle School and in Texas. My husband is a former special education teacher and a native Texan, and we have 3 little ones ages 5yr, 2yr, and 5 months old.
In order to develop an adequate environment conducive to learning, I am providing your child with the classroom guidelines, expectations, and general information about the course. This information will be explained during the first days of class. I have asked your child to share this information with you and to sign and return the acknowledgement form.
I look forward to meeting you face to face soon. It is the best opportunity to build bonds, exchange contact information, address any questions you may have; but most importantly, it will show your child that we are working together. Please send a family representative if you are unable to attend.
