"What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family."  -Mother Teresa 


My name is Debora Cruz-Figueroa and I am your child’s Spanish teacher this year. In Spanish class, students will learn how to say basic phrases, and how to ask and respond to questions in Spanish, such as, “How are you?” In addition, we will touch on the history, geography, and culture of some Spanish-speaking countries, including the Maya, Aztec and Incan Indians and explorers who landed in Latin America. Topics we plan to learn this quarter:  Greetings, courtesies, classroom objects, classroom phrases, numbers, months, days of the week, weather, seasons, clothing, colors, animals, family members, and food. 

Junior High Spanish

Mission: The study of another language and culture enables individuals, whether functioning as citizens or workers, to communicate face-to-face and by virtual means in appropriate ways with people from diverse cultures.

Vision: An education in world languages fosters a population that:

  • Communicates in more than one language with the levels of language proficiency that are required to function in a variety of occupations and careers in the contemporary workplace.
  • Exhibits attitudes, values, and skills that indicate a positive disposition and understanding of cultural differences and that enhance crosscultural communication.
  • Values language learning as a global literacy as well as for its long-term worth in fostering personal, work-related, and/or financial success in our increasingly interconnected world.
