*** UN GRAN FELICITACIONES!!!!! *** to All our 8th graders who placed into level 2 Spanish at St. Joseph's Collegiate, Cardinal O'hara, Sacred Heart, Mount St. Mary's, Canisius, etc. for their Freshman Year 2018-2019. BUEN TRABAJO A TODOS! :)
Por favor please keep finding ways to practice SPEAKING and LISTENING to Spanish around WNY this semester. We are lucky to have many 'delicioso' Mexican restaurants and taco shops, where many of the employees 'Habla' themselves. If you need recommendations...I'll start with LA DIVINA in the Village of Kenmore (quesadilla grande de pollo y la horchata) *** They've recently updated their menu to include: deep fried ice cream and churros, nachos and fish tacos... and AGUACATES in the Elmwood Village (la paradilla mexicana...a.k.a THE BEST FAJITAS IN TOWN y el 'FRIED ICE CREAM'...need I say more? :)
*** TACOS NACHOS QUESADILLAS BURRITOS HORCHATA EMPANADAS SALSA VERDE HELADO POLLO BISTEC ***
May God bestow His many Blessings upon you and your family. Peace, Love and Joy to all.
It's soon to be SEPTEMBER...here are some things to know to be successful in Spanish class:
- Be on time
- Be respectful
- Be responsible
- Be prepared
All homework must be turned in on the assigned due date. Repeated failure to complete homework assignments may result in detention. Detentions are usually served at lunch where students are encouraged to work on the missing assignment. Parents will be notified via e-mail.
7th Grade Homeroom
In addition to teaching Spanish, I am also a 7th grade homeroom teacher. Throughout the year, there will be many special activities, events, and requirements specific to our 7th graders--from class field trips to school based activities, such as the upcoming Walk-a-thon. Ms. Amber Breyer and I, along with the administration, will endeavor to keep you abreast of all the happenings. Please do not hesitate to make inquiries, as well.
Additionally, homeroom #218 has a special class each day. Note, our specials are as follows:
Monday/Wednesday/Friday: Art (first trimester); Computer (second trimester); Music (third trimester)
Tuesday/Thursday: Gym (please remember to bring proper gym clothes, including sneakers, shorts, t-shirt)
About Ms. Stanz
A little bit about me...I have been teaching K-12 and college level Spanish for more than 25 years. I've studied in Salamanca, Spain; Madrid, Spain; and in a beautiful town called Queretaro, Mexico. Studying abroad has opened my eyes to a fascinating world, many cultures and new faces. Thank you for entrusting me to show your children an exciting side of life beyond Western New York and to share my passion for Hispanic language and people.
Let's have a great year!
