    Estimados padres y estudiantes:

    Me llamo Jane Sharpe y soy profesora de español 2 de su hijo/a.  I am delighted to have your child in my class here at Westside.

    We have five general teaching areas in foreign language:  reading, writing, speaking, and listening in the target language (Spanish); and Hispanic culture.  I will speak in Spanish as much as possible.  I expect students to speak in Spanish as much as possible.  We are focused on communication in Spanish.

     

    Class Rules

    1. Be in your assigned seat with all of your materials out. Turn off your phone and put it in your book bag. NO FOOD OR DRINKS (EXCEPT WATER) IN CLASS.
    2. Be prepared for class every day; bring ALL your class materials.
    3. Use Spanish as much as possible; ALWAYS participate appropriately.
    4. THE BELL DOES NOT DISMISS YOU. STAY IN YOUR SEAT UNTIL I DISMISS YOU.
    5. DO NOT interfere with my teaching or with the right of other students to learn.
    6. Students are required to honor pledge everything that is turned in for a grade by writing on the paper:

              "I have neither given nor received aid on this __________" then sign.

     

    Additional classroom rules are the same as the school rules.

     Parents and students have access to my weekly plans on my Westside web site, so they should use this resource to keep up with all classwork and assignments. Instructions for graded assignments are also in the gradebook under the assigned date.

    Tutoring is during morning and afternoon Academic Intervention times.

    I am looking forward to a very pleasant and successful semester with all of my students.

     

    Su servidora,
