To all of my classes; I have really missed seeing all of you and hope that we will be in contact face-to-face before too long. We will be meeting with Mr. Kays on Zoom tomorrow to decide how to get lessons to you. As soon as we have that meeting, I will let you know what I have been told.
This is such a strange time. Luckily my grandkids live across the street and so we get to play with them daily. That has kept me sane and it has kept me from focusing only on the Corona Virus. I have also spent quite a bit of time re-connecting with friends that I had lost touch with through the years and my husband, Don, and I have been checking on family that live out of town. I would encourage you to also check on those that you love and to communicate with friends that you are no longer close to. These are unsure times for all of us and you never know when you reach out to someone, how important that might be to them.
I will update this tomorrow and let you know what I have been told. In the meantime, stay healthy mentally and physically. I am including my cell phone number in case you need to text me.
Talk to you tomorrow!!
Welcome to my teacher webpage. As I begin my 43rd year of teaching Spanish, I am excited about the accomplishments of the CISD Spanish classes all the way from Collins Intermediate to Corsicana Middle School to Corsicana High School. We all work closely together to make sure that the students that we teach get a rigorous and challenging education in Spanish. As communication and culture have become such an important part of the language, we try to include those into the daily lessons that we teach.
I am a graduate of Trinity University in San Antonio where I majored in Spanish and French. Before attending Trinity, I lived in Durango, Durango, Mexico where I attended the Colegio Americano for the last 2 years of high school. From there I went to the Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico and studied Spanish, French, and Italian. I met my husband, Don Jones at Trinity University and after graduating in 1976, I began teaching and have loved it more and more as the years have gone by. My husband is originally from Corsicana, and we decided to move back here in 1996 so our 2 sons, Curt and Stan could attend school in Corsicana and graduate from CHS. Our youner son, Stan Jones is married to Brandy Palos Jones (ouor daughter) and we are also the proud grandparents of 2 granddaughters and 1 grandson. Come check out the pictures in my room!!!!
I have a passion for teaching and working with young people so I hope that either you, as parents, or your child will feel free to come see me if they need any help in my class. I look forward to communicating with each of you at some point during the school year.
