Check Canvas for  Syllabus.

Lesson plans of each weekly in person class can be found under announcements in Canvas. I am shooting for at least half of the curriculum.  We are on track at the end of quarter 1 to finish a little more than half in both classes.  My kids are 11 and 13.  Please encourage you student to reach out should they need anything or not understand a lesson, if they are behind and they think I will be mad.  I won't be ... I promise. We are all doing the best that we can masked in a language class with 35 students.  

I am originally from Maine; though only for three years of my life did I live there.  My parents moved a lot.  I attended 12 schools before finish high school in Juneau, Alaska.  I learned Spanish in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico as a Rotary Exchange students when I was 16 and 17 years old.  I have lived and spent long periods of time as well in Merida, Venezuela; San Gil, Colombia and Cuba.  My kids are totally bilingual.  My passtimes are snowboarding, the gym, traveling, biking, family time, traveling and reading.  This will be my 25th year of teaching...I think ;)
