Spanish II / español II
Spanish is my second language and my second major on my undergraduate degree. Students learned my first major on my Bachelor of Arts degree was journalism, with an emphasis on public relations. Students' most asked questions have included where I went to school and some of my interests.
I graduated from Texas State University and attended Ohio University, where I completed a graduate research fellowship. I have studied graduate work in education at Texas State University as well as various professional development seminars.
My childhood hobbies were playing sports, such as little league baseball, cheerleading, twirling, volleyball, track, and tennis. Writing poetry, playing saxophone, or reading was and remains enjoyable. Today I still play tennis and write poetry, songs, and news stories. I've supported the American Cancer Society Relay For Life, United States Tennis Association, and was a charter member of the Charles M. Schulz museum. Working full-time on media relations, event planning, and economic development projects is wonderful. Yet, as I began to raise my own family, switching to full-time education and part-time public relations interests worked out great.
After helping to teach classes and volunteer at Texas State University, Dallas I.S.D., and Refugio I.S.D., I decided to move to the Rockport-Fulton community and teach full time at Aransas County I.S.D., where I have taught since 2007. With a background in Mass Communications and Event Planning, helping students learn about managing their time for studies and extra-curricular activities is a natural part of my wanting students to succeed.

CLASS SUPPLIES 2019-20
Have a pencil in class each day we complete written assignments.
We will know in advance if only computers will be used.
Each student is encouraged to use a pocket folder with brads or a 1-inch, three-ring binder for class. Being organized and having study guides to use as a reference will help students be successful in their Spanish 2 course.
Students must ask permission and receive permission in order to use an electronic device in the classroom.
Students are expected to put away electronic devices during class unless permission is asked and given for academic use. Sometimes students will be allowed to use devices as part of a daily lesson. Computer lab time is also scheduled for some lessons.

The RFHS Spanish Club is a social club for members to share interests, build leadership and social skills, and plan as well as participate in events together. Members do not have to be Spanish class students.
During the 2019-20 school year and hosted by the ACE Program, club members and officers will have the opportunity to plan meetings and activities.
Last year the Spanish Club donated new plush toys to the annual Teddy Bear Bike Ride. New plush toys were donated to riders to take by police escort from the Bay Area Bicycles to Driscoll Children's Hospital in Corpus Christi. Members hosted a Día de los Muertos face painting and photo booth. The club participated in Homecoming activities. Members also designed a club t-shirt and planned social events.
This year members have already served as volunteers during the Little Bay Labor Day Music Festival weekend event, with a featured Fiesta en La Playa celebration for the community. We also had a Homecoming mum and garter craft day during one of our gatherings. The Spanish Club had two Homecoming representatives during Homecoming Week. This year the club held a plush toy drive for the Teddy Bear Bike Ride to Driscoll Children's Hospital in Corpus Christi, by hosting a movie night and lock-in. RFHS students were able to donate a toy and enjoy social time with planned activities until sunrise. For social time, club members enjoyed a Holdiay-Christmas fiesta. They were also invited to participate in the Hispanic Heritage display running this semester at The History Center of Aransas County. Some members joined in Pirate Spirit to cheer on the basketball team during the playoffs.
Currently, the ACE program is closed until schools reopen. However, online resources are available at:
