I have been teaching at Arizona College Prep since it opened in 2009. I am excited to be teaching Spanish 2 to our eighth graders. In Spanish it will appear as though we are moving slowly, reviewing last year's vocabulary, grammar concepts, and so on. Then hold on to your hats as we dive right in to new vocabulary, preterite verb conjugations, and more. In the first month, your student will already be able to expand upon old knowledge and use this new knowledge through different methods.
