 I hope you had a great vacation, and now you are ready to begin a new year of language and culture learning!

Algo sobre Sra. Kulis (Something About Me)                              

I am Romanian, my husband is Polish, and I teach Spanish. I lived in Chicago for 4 years and in Texas for 13 years. This brief description summarizes my multicultural background. 

My first career choice was Nursing. I developed a passion for Spanish when I came to the United States, and I decided to go back to school and get a BA degree from Texas State University (Eat 'em up cats!) with a major in Spanish and minor in Secondary Education. I enjoy learning new things about different cultures, and I know that my Spanish classes provide many opportunities to "explore the world" and think more globally; "think outside the box". 

Neither English nor Spanish is my first language, and I can understand how challenging learning a new language can be to young adolescents.

I look forward to a great year at CPHS.

am proud to be the sponsor for the National Spanish Honor Society (NSHS).

 My classroom operates on mutual respect. I am here to encourage and facilitate language learning. My students should not be afraid to make mistakes, take risks, and ask questions. All students should take advantage of available resources: google classroom, website, textbook, notes, , dictionary (or online word reference such as www.wordreference.com), family members, and friends. I am available to help. Please come to see me during DEN, before and/or after school.
