About Me

I received my Masters Degree in Teaching 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 and I am looking forward to passing on the Spanish traditions and cultures of these countries sharing my experiences with the students. Hopefully students will enjoy learning this rich language and understand the importance of learning another language.

*To be successful in any foreign language students must be willing to keep up with the work, note taking, etc. and study every day.*

• Absences:

It is YOUR responsibility to make up any missing work. There will be a folder for Spanish by the door with work that was covered for the day you were gone. It is up to you to look in this folder or ask a classmate what you had missed. If your missing work is not turned in, the grade will become a permanent zero.

If you are absent for an extended period, please see me to make arrangements. Students that are absent for sporting events or other school activities are responsible for turning in work that was missed.

** If you are absent on a review day, this does not excuse you from the test. 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. You may do so by attending tutoring.
