Foreign Language Department Coordinator
Somers Middle School
¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español! I am looking forward to another wonderful year at SMS! I am very excited to be working together with all of you in Spanish class!
A few bits of information for you as we start a new school year….
As communication is a key element for student success, I encourage you to address any concerns or questions you may have to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will usually get back to you within 24 hours but sooner when possible. We can always set up a phone conference this way as well. Students may use this email address as well if they ever have a question or concern. I will communicate to you via email, Schoolwires (my Somersschools.org page), Infinite Campus (portal) and through your children!
Please find my course expectations information in the files section in the menu on the left side of my SMS website. Also, you will find each Spanish course I teach has its own page where you will find information and announcements throughout the year. Courses are listed by period. Assessments and homework will be listed on Infinite Campus (portal) as well as all marking period grades.
School supplies lists are located on the SMS website under Back to School. For Spanish class, please be sure to have the following on September 1 and bring to class each day:
· 3 ring binder – 1.5 inch size is fine (should be dedicated ONLY for Spanish class)
· Loose-leaf paper
· 6 dividers for the binder
· Blue/black pens (no pink/purple/orange etc.)
· Box of tissues donated to share with the class.
Learning a language takes a lot of practice. My goal is to work hard to help you find success in Spanish, and I expect students to work hard at home as well. Working together we will have a great year!
Please feel free to contact me any time with questions or concerns you may have. Looking forward to a great year!
