Dear Parents,

Thanks for sharing your child with me this year. I am looking forward to the upcoming year and to getting to know you and your child as the year progresses. I am often asked what students need to do in order to do well in Spanish. Below, I have outlined some basic practices that will help your child succeed. In addition, I am available before school and during academic support time on Wednesday mornings in room 217. I can be reached via voice mail or e-mail. However, e-mail is the best and quickest method of contacting me. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me should you have any questions or concerns.



DO HOMEWORK ON TIME!  (Similar to math classes, Spanish is a class in which concepts build upon previous concepts and practice with these concepts is essential.  Students will typically have a homework assignment every evening.  Failing to complete homework in a timely manner will result in the student falling behind very quickly. 


STUDY EVERY DAY, EVEN IF THERE IS NO HOMEWORK!  (There is always something to study:  grammar concepts and vocabulary.  Spend 10-15 minutes a night reviewing these items.)


USE INTERNET SOURCES TO PRACTICE! (See helpful sites page.)


ASK FOR HELP IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING!  (My goal is for you to succeed.  I’m always more than happy to give extra help.  I can also give you names of tutors if you are interested.)
