        This will be a fun and exciting year, as students are introduced to Spanish.  
    I hope to provide insight from my Spanish heritage and share the love I have for the Spanish language and it's culture.   Most importantly, I tell students
    "Don't worry... it's not about perfection, it's about learning how to communicate, 
    Si, TU PUEDES!! (YOU CAN DO IT)
