Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!  My name is Vanessa Lozada, and I look forward to being your son or daughter’s Spanish teacher this year. This is my 16th year teaching Spanish in Columbia County and I enjoy the challenge of educating students.  

As a teacher and a parent, I realize that in order for our children to be successful, it is important that you and I work together in guiding them to learn responsibility for their education. This year I am teachingStudy Skills, Spanish 3 , and AP Spanish Language and Culture. If you want a quick response, please email me to communicate a concern

In addition, I recommend that you access parent portal, which is the online grading system that Columbia County uses. It is a good tool to know how your child is doing in the areas of grades and attendance. You can become aware of problems before it is too late to correct them. 

I look forward to teaching your student. Stay well and safe!

Please make sure that you have access to Microsoft 365 and Google Classroom so that you can communicate with me and receive important information about assignments or assessments. Also, when you sign into your Google Classroom account you will be able to see your weekly agenda and resources for each unit. I will provide you the code per class period during the first week of school. There you will find resources, assignments and assessments. Remember that you always have something to practice and something to learn in español. If you need to contact me, you can do so via email

You need to make sure that you can sign into your Classlink. This is where Spanish 3 students will find the online textbook  Avancemos 3.  AP students should go to and create an account for the AP Spanish Language and Culture textbook, Temas. If you need help signing into your Classlink account click here for instructions. 

I look forward to teaching you. Stay well and safe!
