¡Bienvenidos! ¡Hola! Welcome & Hello!
Welcome to your 2017-2018 School year! I am Mrs. Richards and I teach Spanish 1A (7th grade) and 1B (8th grade) aka Carnegie Unit class for high school credit.
I am extremely passionate about teaching Spanish language and culture, just as I was about teaching English back in Los Angeles. I find it fascinating to see how students' minds and hearts are changed when they are exposed to different ways of seeing the world. I believe in the power of language and I believe in the power of bilingualism! I graduated from California State University with a bachelor's degree in Child-Development K-12, my teaching credentials from UCLA and a degree from Pepperdine University in Master of Science in Administration and Preliminary Services. My intent is to teach Spanish so YOU can build a base for becoming a Bilingual Citizen of America! Learning a second langauge is something that you can use for the rest of your life, no matter where you go in this world.
Let's have a great school year!
Mrs. Richards ¡Una persona bilingüe vale por dos!
