Welcome to Señora McNicholas' web page!
It is my goal to prepare our students for today's multicultural society! During Spanish class, I focus on developing the four language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. I also introduce my students to the Hispanic culture, as well as discuss possible career opportunities in the foreign language field.
I truly enjoy teaching Spanish, and working with my students. MY STUDENTS make my job exciting and enjoyable! If you have any questions about the subject matter, please feel free to speak to me. My classroom door is always open!

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
Cinco de Mayo, (5th of May) is an annual celebration held on May 5th. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army's victory over the powerful French Empire at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.
In the United States, Cinco de Mayo has taken on a significance beyond that in Mexico. More popularly celebrated in the United States than Mexico, the date has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture. In Mexico, the commemoration of the battle continues to be mostly ceremonial, such as through military parades or battle reenactments.
Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken for Mexico's Independence Day - the most important national holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16, commemorating the Cry of Dolores (Viva Mexico!) that initiated the war of Mexican independence from Spain.
