In order to capitalize upon the many advantages found in learning a second language as early as possible, the West Long Branch Board of Education has included a Spanish program in grades K-8. Once students finish their eighth grade year at FAS, they should be ready for Spanish II or Spanish II Honors in high school. 

 

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!

GUATEMALA

 



Guatemala City is the largest of all capital cities in Central America. It covers a huge area across flat mountains and surrounding valleys and is home to more than one million people.



Antigua, the original capital city until 1776 and the pride of all Guatemalans, is one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in the  Americas. Nestled among three volcanoes, it contains many colonial buildings, churches, and museums.



Tikal is a monumental Mayan center located deep in the jungles of Guatemala. The ruins include soaring pyramids, plazas, temples and a museum.



The Quetzal, Guatemala's national bird, is a strikingly beautiful bird, some say the most beautiful on Earth. The Mayans considered it a sacred animal. In danger of extinction, it's only found in remote cloud forests.



Guatemala is a haven for fruits of all kinds. The country's tropical and mountainous interior offers a huge variety from bananas to mamey, mangoes and acerolas.
