    Welcome to Spanish 1 and Spanish 2!

    ¡Hola! My name is Yajaira Rodriguez and I am delighted to have you in my Spanish class here at UCVTS.  I am so excited at this opportunity to be able to construct a nurturing learning environment conducive to the promotion and development essential to foreign language acquisition. I know that you will have a rewarding experience in Spanish class.
    You are enrolled in a class that comes with high expectations which requires your effort. In every class we will spend time perfecting the four skills necessary for learning a foreign language: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Since learning a foreign language may be a new skill for you, you should expect to be prepared to keep up with the classwork, homework, as well as participating in every class. It is very important to stay in the target language throughout each class. 

    Extra help is available twice per week. These days will be posted in Google Classroom.

    It’s my ultimate goal to show my students how fun, rewarding, and beneficial it can be to learn other languages!

     I am looking forward to a great school year!
