Spanish I, II and Micro-Enterprise

Buenos:

I am delighted to teach your little darlings this 2017 -2018 school term.  We have some exciting assignments planned for this year.

For those of you who have students in Spanish I; this will be a challenging semester.  The first half is ALWAYS challenging because it is the building blocks of what is to come during the second half.  It is imperative that the students stay on task and complete ALL homework assignments as assigned.  HOMEWORK is a major player in learning Spanish.

Spanish II is delightful to me.  It pulls the language together and students will begin reading more (than in Spanish I) ...from a number of different perspectives, novels, newspaper articles, magazines, etc.  In addition to reading, we begin speaking...this will be quite daunting initially, but I MUST break the fear factor in order to increase Spanish communication.

This is my first year teaching Micro-Enterprise.  I am so excited about this class that I could jump through this computer.  Parents, please brace yourselves as I/we plow through what I believe is one of the most interesting classes at Neville High School.  We will learn some practical/valuable lessons with the intentions of your little darlings becoming gainfully employed and pursuing ambitions/thoughts of owning their own business(es). I will be calling upon you, the parents to help make this vision a reality.  More to come on this...

Again, let me say, thank you for entrusting the education of your child with me and with Neville High School.  Through partnership we can make GREAT THINGS HAPPEN.
