When the weather outside is frightful …

…you know it’s Winter Term!!


Happy Winter Term!!

Yes, the new term is now three days in and I couldn’t be happier!!!  We’re getting rain (and ICE!!) like we should be getting in December, the classes are up and running, and I am thankful for being able to be your student’s/your teacher!!  In Spanish 1b classes this week, we are going to really dominate verbs and master conjugating them.  During the term, in addition to working with verbs, we will talk about weather, clothing, family, colors, telling time, learning how to talk about likes and dislikes, and a lot more!  Spanish 4b students are entering the “nose to the grindstone” term.  Those taking IB tests will be completing TWO internal assessments this term in late February and early March.  Those preparing for the AP exam will be starting to complete AP Spanish practice tests – joy!!  So, all of my students are going to be working hard and making great strides in learning Spanish!!  I am súper excited to be teaching you all this term!!  Happy Winter!!holly

Autumn closes with a sandwich, a test, and cold nights!


Hola!  Whew!  It’s been a busy and stressful Fall Term.  But, in spite of it all, we have made it to the end of Fall Term, 2016!!  Congratulations!  If you are a Spanish 1 student (or parent of one) and have Spanish 1b Winter Term, great!  In Spanish 4/5, we cooked some  cuban sandwiches — and Spanish 1a students finished with a Chapter Uniit Exam!!  Good times!!

I hope I get to teach you again.  If you are not taking Spanish 1b until Spring term, DO NOT WORRY!!  You won’t forget everything, especially if you come back to the blog in late February.  I will post a link that has some review materials for you!  Also, come by any time after school (during my office hours) from 3:30- 4:00 daily) for help, clarification, or study tips!!  Have a great Winter Term!!  THANK YOU for a good Fall Term everyone!!
