How do I help my child when I don't know any Spanish?
What you can do is have your child put her vocabulary words, including verbs, on one side of an index card and the English on the other. Then you can read the English to him/her and have him/her say and/or spell the Spanish to you. That way both of you will learn Spanish!Back to Top
What can my child do if he/she doesn't remember what's for homework?
There are a few things your child can do. First, this web site has the homework listed on it. Secondly, your child can email me at email@example.com, or he/she can call a friend. Back to Top
My child is struggling with Spanish. What can he/she do?
I stay after school every Thursday for extra help at the middle school. Your child can meet me in room 219 at 2:30 and then take the 3:15 bus home. Please send in a note allowing your child to stay. At the high school I stay after every Tuesday for extra help in room 211. Also, if your child is free 6th. and/or 8th. period, he/she can up for help during either or both of those periods.Back to Top
If my child still doesn't understand the content, what other help is there?
If he/she stays for extra help and is still struggling, please let me know and I will try to set him/her up with a high school student from the Spanish Honor Society to tutor him/her.Back to Top
How do I get in contact with you as his/her teacher?
You can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can call me at the high school at 236-5810. Please note that I will check my email every evening up until 9:00 PM. After that, I will check it in the morning.Back to Top
How many years of Spanish does my child need to graduate?
This is a question best answered by your child's guidance counselor. Please make an appointment with that person so you receive the most accurate and up to date information regarding graduation requirements.Back to Top
What can my child do if she/he failed a quiz?
At both schools I drop the lowest quiz grade at the end of each quarter, so that usually takes care of the one "oops" quiz.Back to Top
