    Hola y bienvenidos a español 1 y 2! -- Hello and welcome to Spanish 1 and 2! 


    I'm so glad to be at MCHS again this school year, and excited to get your students started in Spanish. I received my bachelor's in general education from Leavell College in New Orleans, Louisiana, and have worked in varying levels of education, teaching a wide range of backgrounds ever since.  I have two children -- Siana, who is a little Jag herself, and Ari who will join her sister in about a year from now.  
    It's great to be a Jaguar now for three years, after nine years teaching at a bilingual school in Guadalajara, Mexico -- the home of mariachi, tequila, and Guillermo del Toro, and I look forward to using my real life experience to help give a little context and fun to the Spanish classes I'll be teaching this year.
    Important information will be posted on Canvas, and I will keep relevant links on this page. Always feel free to send me an email at hrivera@madison-schools.com should you have any questions or comments.


    ***You can always practice your Spanish with any language teacher, mom, dad, brother, sister, friend, classmate, grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncle, cousin, neighbor...!!! 

    The more you practice, the better you will become!

    Practice by:

    • saying the words outloud
    • reading them in your head
    • teaching someone
    • listening to Spanish-speaking radio stations
    • watching Spanish-speaking TV shows (especially the news)
    • writing down the words, then checking your answers with your packet
    • practicing 5-10 phrases a day
    ¡Viva Jaguares!
