    Welcome to my website :-)



    I love teaching Spanish and am looking forward to the new school year working with your children!  This is year 11 teaching Spanish and year 5 as a Blue Ridge Tiger.  :-)


    The best time to reach me is during my conference period- 5th period this year.  The most effective way to communicate with me is via email:    http://http://brisd.net/domain/283

    I check it periodically throughout the day as time permits and will respond to you just as quickly as I can.






    It is imperative that students work outside of class on concepts and vocabulary presented in class.  No one can gain a working vocabulary in a new language if they do not put in the time to commit it to memory.  Not doing so results in a student who cannot produce any spontaneous utterances at the end of a year of instruction.  Instead, they will be reliant on their text book or other sources.  The use of translator apps is absolutely forbidden.  Nothing is learned by a student who relies on translators to do the heavy lifting for him or her. 

    My minimum expectation of outside study is 20 minutes every other day, year round.

    I will be utilizing Google Classroom again this year.  Students will be given a code on the first day of classes that will allow them to "join" their class and then can see, download, and work with any documents I post for them.  If you, as a parent would like access to your studentś class, send me an email.  I highly recommend it!   

    I have been permitted to print classroom sets of my Spanish I and II textbooks this year.  They will not be allowed to leave the room.  In Google Classroom I will upload all slide presentations that I use when I am instructing.  We will also do bellringers and some quizzes in here.  Assignments will be hand written in class.

    Here is a link to my  BRISD Spanish Face Book page: goo.gl/orDVZN.  Check it out for photos of projects, in-class activities and Spanish III field trips! 

    I'm also the student government sponsor again this year. :-) 


    Please join my remind group for your student's class.  Codes are on my schedule page and follow this format:  sbohannon1 (for Spanish I)  Text code to 81010
