Welcome Letter

Hola y Bienvenidos a la página para padres. Me llamo Sr. Glass y yo soy el maestro de Español a la escuela secondaria de Coventry. (Hello and welcome to the Parent's Page. My name is Mr. Glass and I am the Spanish teacher at Coventry High School.) This page is designed for you as parents to get a better idea of what your son or daughter will be doing in Spanish Class. Students will be learning how to speak, read and write in Spanish. As the year and levels progress, you will see an increase in your son or daughters' ability to use the Spanish language. During the school year we will be learning about a variety of cultural topics and doing many projects. Students will be working by themselves and collaboratively with partners and groups. Students will also be incorporating technology into not only projects but daily class routines like note taking and doing assignments online. All Spanish classes will access the class wikipage for all notes and assignments. Spanish 3 and 4 will do many assignments and collaborative projects on their own wikipages. I am looking forward to teaching each of your sons or daughters and having a great year in Spanish.

Gracias, Sr. Glass
