Course Syllabus: Spanish I and II
Instructor: Ms. Patricia MarinoBienvenidos a mi clase de Espanol! I am Mrs. Marino your Spanish teacher.This is my third year at Northwest Middle School, and I am really excited to work with you this school year. I am originally from Mexico City, yes the largest city in the world according to population. I am very proud of my background and culture and that is exactly what I want to share with you. I began to teach in 1990 in the private school system in my country as an ESL teacher. Then in 2003 I was invited to come and work for the American School System for Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools after 3 years I moved to Charlotte and worked as a High School Teacher.Dear Parents:If you need to contact me. I will greatly appreciate that you PLEASE write your child's complete name, grade, and if he/she comes on A or B days to my class. That is to make it easuer to know who we are talking about, due that we have different students with the same first name in our classes.
