Español 1 / Spanish 1

Bienvenidos a la Clase de español / Welcome to Spanish Class

Hello and welcome to Spanish 1 class. My name is Dorylee E. Báez-Nieves and I am very excited to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year. I'm one of the Spanish teachers of Columbia Middle School & Harlem Middle School.

Spanish 1 is a class for students with no previous knowledge of the Spanish language. We will be following the Georgia Standards for Modern Languages which stresses instruction of the five C's. Communication, Culture, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities.

We will be using a variety of online Spanish resources and "¡Avancemos 1!" Spanish textbook. Students will have access to the online version of the textbook. The link can be found under "Class Resources" in their respective Middle School page. All class assignments, homework and projects will be assigned on "google classroom".

If you need to contact me, do not hesitate to email me at

Looking forward to have an excellent school year.

Dr. Báez-Nieves
