Welcome to all (Bienvenidos a todos)

Looking forward to another year teaching Spanish at Hazen.

One of the big components of my class is building vocabulary. Students should be studying their current vocabulary flashcards every evening until they know all the words Spanish to English and vice a versa. If a student says he has no homework, go through his flashcards. If he doesn't know them all, he has homework.

There will also be other assignments as well which I will post on my website. 
Whenever possible, there will be an electronic form of the handout that I have given in class that day in the case that the student loses the original.. Look under documents.

Students will have a text book checked out to them in the first couple weeks of school. They will take that book home and use it as a resource.

Students who use their cell phone in class for texting will automatically get a failing grade in participation that week. (Participation is worth 30% of total grade). 

Please see my handout coming home the first day of school which explains all my policies, materials, etc. Please sign and have student return to me by Tuesday, September 8th

Know that if you have questions etc, the most efficient way of getting to me is through my email.

I plan on increasing confidence with my students in the hopes that they will continue studying the language and use it to travel at some point.
