Hello and welcome to Spanish 1 and 2! I am looking forward to working with you this year as we explore the basics of the Spanish language and culture. Please explore the various pages I have created to help you stay on track and reference the concepts we have already studied.
If you have any questions about grading, retakes, or grades please refer to my class expectations.
A little about me: I love teaching at Cascade! This is my fourth year at CHS and prior to being at Cascade I was a stay at home mom and teacher at Heatherwood Middle School. I studied Spanish in high school, college and abroad. I love to travel and see different cultures and customs! One of my biggest adventures was backpacking through Europe, in 9 countries, over 9 weeks. It was an amazing adventure in observing other cultures, foods, and people! I also learned how to pack light!
Recently I have enrolled to travel abroad to Costa Rica with Srta. Layton and 12 travelers! Stay tuned for pictures and details!
When I am not teaching I am very busy with my family. My husband and I have two girls, ages 10 and 8 who are involved in many, many sports! I have truly turned into a 'soccer mom'! We love to spend time together, travel around the country, and explore Washington.
In the end...I believe it is important to balance school and family. Students also need to have that balance. Everyone is very busy with school, sports, activities, and family. Students and teachers need to work hard to keep this balance. As I teach, I want my students to learn Spanish, appreciate the culture, and also balance school and other activities to help create a well rounded student.
