¡Bienvenidos!

Welcome! 

Allow me to introduce myself; me llamo Profesor Gilbert and I teach Spanish at Rosemont High School in Sacramento, California. I am also the advisor for the RHS Environmental Club, a father & husband, a skateboarder, and can pick a banjo! Here you will find information pertinent to the courses that I teach. My vision is to grow a classroom community that encourages the development of Spanish language acquisition as well as advance the awareness of the geography, contributions, & customs of the Spanish speaking world. 

Having lived in the Sacramento area for nearly my entire life, I genuinely believe that being bi-literate is an intrinsic part of California's identity; the ability of people to communicate and understand one another in more than one modality is something to be supported, celebrated, and shared. I feel privileged to bring that vision to our community of learners and am honored to call myself a "Rosemont Wolverine." 

For the 2018-2019 school year, I will be teaching five sections of Spanish 1 and I look forward to helping our community of learners begin their journey to becoming multi-lingual. 
UPDATE - 13 June, 2018

Dear families and colleagues,

I feel compelled to share the following information: you should know that I will be on an Academic Leave for the Fall Semester of the 2018-2019 school year. I am enrolled in 10 college-level units and intend to bring my new skills to our community of learners on Monday, January 6, 2019. Our students will be in very capable hands and I look forward to seeing everybody at the beginning of the new year! Thank you for your understanding and feel free to reach out to our Administration if you have any questions, concerns, or comments.

Kindest regards,

-JG
