Dear Parent or Guardian:

It is with pleasure that I welcome your child to my Spanish classes this school year. I am looking forward to a successful and rewarding academic year at Surry County High School.

My approach to teaching has been shaped by my sixteen years as a high school/college Spanish teacher. Collaborative learning, student-centered methodology, real life learning experiences and integration of technology are pivotal components of my teaching methodology.  My main goal is to create a supportive and caring teaching-learning environment that fosters collaborative participation, stimulates student’s creativity and encourages the development of critical thinking, communicative and transcultural skills.

Additional information about the class is provided in the course syllabus.  If you ever have any comments, questions or concerns, please contact me by phone at 757-267-2211 Ext. 334 (each day after school) or e-mail me at to schedule a meeting.

I am excited about working with your child and I am looking forward to a great year!
