Welcome to Spanish 1A & 1B at STMS! 
Spanish is a two year program for students with no prior knowledge of Spanish.  Students who complete Spanish 1A as a 7th grader and Spanish 1B as an 8th grader advance to Spanish 2 at STHS in 9th grade and earn one year of the foreign language requirement for college entrance.
This class is a great opportunity to get a jump start on your college career, learn a new language, be exposed to a different culture, and have fun learning something new!

Welcome to Spanish Culture & Crafts:
This is part of the 6th grade period 5 elective wheel. Students learn about Latin culture through hands on activities, slide shows,  and crafts.


About me:
I have been teaching in the Lake Tahoe Unified School District for over 20 years. I learned to speak Spanish while traveling and studying in Latin America. I love teaching Spanish language and culture and sharing my travel experiences with my students.

When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time in beautiful South Lake Tahoe biking, hiking, boating, snow skiing, water skiing, and gardening. 

Other professional interests include singing and writing children's songs and stories that teach young children to respect and appreciate nature. Stay on the trail and don't feed our bears!


7th grade Spanish 1A students recently took a walking field trip to Taquería Jalisco where they ordered food in Spanish! In class, we are following up writing thank you letters in Spanish. ¡La comida es deliciosa!...
