¡Hola y bienvenidos a la clase de español!

Hello and welcome to Spanish class!

My name is Keri Bristow and I am excited to be the OQS Spanish teacher. The goal of the language and culture program will be to introduce students to the Spanish language and Hispanic cultures through engaging and fun activities. Students will learn the basics like greetings, months, days of the week, seasons, colors, body parts, classroom objects, numbers and the alphabet, just to name a few! We will explore culture by learning basic geography, studying holidays, singing songs, dancing, etc.

The main goal is communication in Spanish, so students will be encouraged to practice with their classmates in directed activities.  The upper grades will be introduced to reading and writing in the language.  The overall goal is to build lifelong learners of languages as we navigate through our multicultural world.  I welcome questions, suggestions and comments via email at and thank you for your support!
