    Hola, bienvenidos. Bonjour. Bienvenue. Hi, Welcome to Spanish or French.
    I'd like to tell you a little about myself.  I'm a native Spanish speaker, my parents are from Spain. I grew up in Miami and lived in Vidalia, GA for 19 years.  I've been teaching since 1991.  I have been at Holt High since 2013-2014 school year. 2019-2020 school year is going to be great.
    Both French & Spanish is a course that requires dedication, persistence and attention to detail.
    Spanish/French 1's goal is to be able to communicate at the most basic level, begin to understand cultural differences as well as similarities, adopt pronunciation practices.  In other words, be able to introduce our self and others, order at a restaurant, tell time, express date, describe people and things, etc.
    Spanish 2 & 3 is a continuation of  Spanish 1. The language becomes more complex and involved.  This course adds political and historical knowledge.
    Spanish 2 & 3's goals are to be able to hold a more complex and complicated conversation in the past, present and future.
    Spanish 3  for Heritage Speakers [Native Speakers] focuses on reading and written language proficiency.

  • I'd like to tell you a little about myself.  I'm a native Spanish speaker, I was born in Cuba and immigrated to the US via the Freedom flights.  My family is from Spain. I grew up in Miami which I consider my hometown.  I married, Jose, in 1985 and moved to Gainesville. FL [Go Gators].  We moved Vidalia, GA and raised 3 wonderful children. In 2006, we came to Alabama.  I graduated from GSU [Georgia Southern University]  in 1991. I hold a BA in French and a BA inSpanish. I taught at West Laurens High School in Dublin, GA for 12 years.  I then, took a position at Vidalia High School since my kids demanded more time and energy. At both schools I taught French & Spanish. I love teaching. I've traveled to Europe with and without student multiple times and love to speak to people in their own language.  
    I have been at Holt High since 2013-2014 school year. Holt High is a wonderful community of teachers, staff, and students.
