DESCRIPTION OF LEVEL OF STUDY

This course provides students with opportunities to continue the development of their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Students will participate in simple, real­life conversational situations that incorporate learned elements of the language and culture. Students will compose sentences, which narrate, describe, compare, and summarize familiar topics from the hispanic culture. Students will develop a better understanding of the similarities and differences between cultures and languages and examine the influence of the beliefs and values of the hispanic culture(s).

Spanish II is characterized by language behavior that moves from imitative to reflective (that is, a more thoughtful rather than automatic response to a situation or question). Students will begin to respond in more complete and purposeful ways to meet their practical needs.

This is my eleventh year of teaching Spanish.  I have a bachelor's degree in Spanish from the University of Memphis, a Master's Degree in Education from Union University, and am a National Board Certified Teacher in World Languages.  I have traveled throughout Spain, Mexico, and Ecuador.  My husband is a social studies instructional advisor, and we have a daughter at LHS.  We are members of Longview Heights Baptist Church.  I love to read my kindle, garden, cook, and travel.  I love teaching Spanish, and couldn't see myself doing anything else.  I have the best job in the world! I am very excited to be at Lewisburg High School!  Go Patriots!
