Spanish Language Instructor, Cecilia Pucci Orrego
One of my biggest passions in life is helping students to become extraordinary citizens of the world!
Sra. Orrego earned her Masters in Foreign Languages with concentration in Spanish from West Virginia University. She is proud of her diverse background as she was born in Brazil, her parents are from Argentina, grandparents from Spain and Italy, her husband is from Colombia and their kids were born in here in the US.
Sra, Orrego loves traveling and getting to know new cultures, places, and people. She also loves dancing and was once a Flamenco dance teacher!
WELCOME TO SPANISH!
Beginning in 7th Grade, students can enroll in Beginning Spanish. In 8th Grade, students continue to Spanish I where they can earn high school credit. Students are evaluated for their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills throught out the semester and with a midterm and final test.
During the semester students participate in fun projects and activities that help them incorporate their new language skills. They will learn Spanish by making restaurant menus, creating flyers, drawings, and even acting out skits for their classmates. In Spanish class we also sing songs, dance, and learn new games as we study Spanish and Latin cultures.
Students make a presentation of a Latin American country or famous Latin American person during the month of September, Hispanic Heritage Month
We also enjoy celebrating holidays like Dia de los Muertos, Cinco de Mayo, and Navidades
