¡Feliz Año Nuevo! (Happy New Year!)
My World Language (Spanish) program consists of instruction once a week for 40 minutes in all
the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth grade classrooms. If you have any questions, comments,
or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email (see above email address). Email is the best
way of communication since I travel to all the elementary schools. I check my email regularly.
Please refer to my web site for more information regarding the World Language (Spanish)
program.
