Dear St. Michaels Parents,
My name is Senora Wanda Hernandez. I am the Spanish teacher at St. Michael School. I was born in Puerto Rico and I have 13 years of teaching experience.
During my many years of experience as a teacher, I have come to realize that you are the most important people in the education of your son/daughter. Therefore, I suggest that we work together as a team in order to provide your son/daughter with the best possible education.
My mission for the classes is to work cooperatively in our class and actively practice daily to communicate in Spanish via listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
During the school year, we will be using a textbook and technology in the classroom such as iPad, SmartBoard, internet,
YouTube, and other websites to enhance learning.
Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions or suggestions.
