Bienvenidos a la clase de Español!

Hola! Soy la Señorita Mazzieri I would like to start by welcoming you and your child to a new school year. I will be teaching grade 3 to 8 and I hope that throughout the course of the year, your child will see the importance of learning a foreign language and that he or she will become excited about the opportunities that come with it.

Students will be given oral and written tests and unannounced quizzes, homework and projects and students are expected to participate actively in class and to do all homework assignments. When there is no written assignment, students still need to spend 10-15 minutes reviewing vocabulary and grammar.
