¡Bienvenidos  (welcome)!     I'll miss my estudiantes fabulosos at BES and PES!  It's so fun to return to see all the great estudiantes at Salisbury, Webster, and Loudon!                                                                                                                                      We'll be looking at maps, learning songs, exploring cultural diversity, and having fun with Spanish words.
