Bachelor Degree in SOCIAL WORK and SPANISH PLATTSBURGH STATE UNIVERSITY, NEW YORK SPANISH CERTIFICATION EC-12 Tutorial Sessions: Will be available after school.
Welcome to the Spanish class 2017-2018!
I look forward to working with you and your child in what will be a very successful and exciting school year at Duncanville ISD.
My name is M. Hidalgo, a native Spanish speaker, born and raised in Ecuador (South America). In New York City, I worked directly with parents and children in the social work field. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my two children, playing soccer, hiking and traveling.
My goals this year for your child include helping him or her to develop vocabulary and knowledge of key phrases in the Spanish language and to help him or her to appreciate cultural differences between the culture in the United States and those of Spanish-speaking countries around the world. The Spanish I and II courses are centered on a communicative approach that incorporates the four main language skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing Spanish.
In order to supplement the work we do in class, students will be required to complete homework assignments and periodic projects. I have a website page at Quizlet.com and Google Classroom where you can keep up to date with the class; so please check the above website as assigned. A course syllabus and a copy of the topics that will be covered in this year’s curriculum will be sent home soon.
As a teacher and parent, I believe that a strong school-home communication line is very important and the key factor for a strong learning environment. Please take the time to read the information in the course syllabus and use it as reference throughout the school year. Meanwhile, you can contact me anytime time with any questions or concerns. I expect this to be an exciting and fulfilling school year for your child, and I look forward to meeting you any time!
