Spanish Classes with Sra. Buckmiller

I encourage students to communicate in Spanish.  I strive to provide an environment in which students can feel comfortable making mistakes, an important and essential part of learning a new language. My goal is to help students learn from these mistakes so they can communicate their message more clearly and accurately.  Students will be reading, writing, speaking, and listening in Spanish during each class session.
