Biography

I am very happy to be part of the SASEAS family.  I come to my position as Spanish teacher with many years of teaching experience.  I have taught elementary Spanish at the Mount Campus School of The College of Mt. St. Joseph.  I taught at the secondary level at Elder High School.  I also spent 28 years teaching Language Arts at Our Lady of the Visitation School on the west side of town.  After retiring a few years ago, I decided I was ready for another challenge and found ths wonderful opportunity at SASEAS.
 
When I am not at school, I enjoy spoiling my 22 grandchildren and spending time with my husband and two Boston Terriers.  I also enjoy reading and entertaining family and friends.
 
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

6th Grade Hispanic Country Project

Here is a more specific list of requirements for the 6th grade country research poster project.  We have been working on some basic Spanish sentences that students can use to label the various sections of the poster.  Students should use these sentence patterns rather than Google Translator since I will be grading them for using what we have learned in the classroom.  See the sixth grade pages for the attachment.

This week, all the students are learning about the Mexican holiday El Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead).  Each student is invited to decorate a butterfly and label it with the name of a loved one who has passed.  We will be placing these butterflies on our "ofrenda" in the Spanish classroom and praying for all of our loved ones during next Wednesday's class.

The students have been studying all about El Calendario (calendar) - and learning to write the date in Spanish.  Next week we will be starting a study of the Mexican holiday "El Día de los Muertos".

We are learning all about the four seasons of the year - el otoño (fall), el invierno (winter), la primavera (spring), and el verano (summer).  We are also talking about the colors of otoño - rojo (red), amarillo (yellow), anaranjado(orange) y café (brown).  Students have been invited to add a colored leaf to our hall tree to show "Los Colores de Otoño".
