¡Hola y bienvenidos a la clase de español! The main goal of this class is for you to not only learn Spanish well enough to
be successful when going on to the next level but also to learn in a fun, relaxed environment and to develop an
appreciation of the Spanish language and culture for life-long use and enjoyment. You are expected to be an active and
willing participant in class to the best of your ability at all times.
I welcome all parents’ involvement in their child’s progress in school. By maintaining an open line of communication
between home and school, we will ensure that all students attain the highest level of success. My preferred method of
communication is via email at [email protected] You may also reach me at 480-472-3325. Please leave a message
and I will respond within twenty-four hours. Please do not hesitate to contact me for any questions or concerns you may
have.
Tutoring is available on Thursdays from 3:50 to 4:30 p.m. My office hours are from 8:00 to 8:55 a.m.
