Language, Culture, & Community

We can only make the world a better place if we are aware of what's beyond our front door & are willing to take action. Exploring language & culture is a means to opening that door, widening perspectives & growing a greater sense of place in our world community.

¡Soy Señora Speno! I founded the CRES elementary Spanish program in 1998 with the aim of providing students an opportunity to both explore language & culture, striving to fulfill the charge given me at the outset of expanding horizons, perspectives & understanding of the wider world. I am so proud of all my students-¡they are fenomenal!
