Welcome! I am thrilled to be teaching your child at Red Oak Middle School on their journey to the Spanish language. Language has the ability to open doors to other worlds and communities near and far. It is a pleasure to work with your child to develop their language abilities and gain more understanding of other cultures. Your student IS able to acquire another language. I believe in them.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Familias de ROMS,
¡Bienvenidos! Es un placer para mí enseñar a su hijo/a en Red Oak Middle School en este nuevo ciclo escolar. El español es parte de la identidad y puede ser una herramienta muy valiosa en el futuro. En nuestra clase, seremos un equipo mientras desarrollamos más el idioma y hacemos conexiones con otras culturas. Si su estudiante entiende el español, pero no se siente cómodo en cómo comunicarse, ya sea hablando o escribiendo, ¡esta es la clase que necesita!
Estoy muy entusiasmada por este año escolar. Si tiene cualquier pregunta, no dude en contactarme.
