¡Bienvenidos! (Welcome!) I am José Flores and I am your child's Spanish teacher for the year. This year students will develop their communicative proficiency within meaningful cultural contexts. They will learn to listen, read, write, and speak in Spanish, at an introductory level, while being opened to a variety of different cultures and practices. I will help them continue down their path as individuals who are learning to become college and career ready. My classroom is a place where I want my students to feel safe and welcome, but also to be ready to work hard, to be challenged, and to be pushed towards their path to becoming multi-literate.
