“The more languages you know, the more you are human.” – Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk

Dear Parents,

Welcome to our Spanish class.  My name is Ms. Flor E. Garcia-Urias and I am very excited to be part of Saint Matthew’s family and your child’s Spanish teacher. I believe that learning is a lifelong process where people learn about things that will help them in their life skills. 

Learning another language is like a roller-coaster; there is fear, laughter, confusion, excitement, frustration and success. For some is easier than others, but we all can learn. People that speak two languages, get more doors open than those that only speak one language in a very competitive world.  It is never too late or too soon to learn a second or third language. Like Federico Fellini said: “A different language is a different vision of life.”

My goal is to provide your children with a variety of material that will facilitate their learning experience and succeed in meeting their fullest potential. Your children will not only learn about the language, but we will explore their culture, food, art, music, and dance among other things.

I am looking forward to be part of your child’s learning experience.

Thank you for being part of our family.

Flor E. Garcia-Urias M.A.
