Bienvenidos! 

Bienvenidos! Welcome to Espanol!  My name is Yorlyn O’Leary and I will be your Spanish teacher for this course.
I am originally from Costa Rica and moved to the United States back in 2000. I have been teaching middle school for the past 14 years and I absolutely love every single minute of it. I am so excited to teach your kids part of my culture, traditions  and the most important my language, Spanish!
I have a Bachelor Degree in Bilingual Education from Universidad Latina de Costa Rica, a Master Degree in Curriculum Instruction and Assessment from Jones International University in Colorado and a Certificate from Harvard Extension School in English Language Learners.
It is my goal to help build your student’s proficiency in Spanish and prepare for Spanish II at the high school level.  As we work together, I know that student success is unlimited. My expectations are based on respect, students’ respect for their education and others’ education.

Reassessment Policy
Students are allowed to redo any summative assessment by following the protocol set up. Students who recieve a D or an F on a summative will be required to retake the summative. Students who receive A, B, or C's on a summative will be allowed one retake per quarter. Students need to set up a time to discuss the assessment with their teacher. Students must turn in all assignments that pertain to that assessment in order to retake assessment. Students are also to complete a Summative Retake Form. Retakes should be within a week.
Sinceramente,
Yorlyn O'Leary
