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 ninth 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!
When I am not teaching I am very busy with my family. My husband and I have two girls, ages 15 and 13 who are very involved with select softball and diving! Outside of school I am one busy mom--always on the move! 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.
