¡Hola y bienvenidos!
My name is Mrs. Holly Hernandez. I’m not a native speaker of Spanish but my husband–who hails from Guatemala–is, and I’ve spent a number of years teaching Spanish as well as other languages. I hold a Bachelor in Chinese and a Master in Bilingual Education. Languages are my love!
I’m excited about the opportunity to get to know students and parents alike, and I’m looking forward to a happy and productive school year.
We are using a Bob Jones University Press curriculum this year which will focus on the following:
– Vocabulary – Writing
– Bible verse memorization – Grammar
– Listening – Conversations
– Reading – Culture
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of exposure to a Spanish language environment–whether via television, podcasts, radio, or travel–for cementing correct pronunciation, intonation, and familiarity with the culture. You’ll find other resources listed on the Spanish Resources page.
I look forward to teaching you, and I hope I can stir up a love for languages in you, too!
