¡Bienvenidos a la clase de Español 1A! :)


Welcome to Spanish 1A! 


I hope you all had a restful and relaxing summer.  I am looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you, and embarking on a truly great year together.


I am Señora Parnas, and I will be your teacher for Spanish 1A.  This will be my 10th year teaching Spanish 1A here at Stanley, and I love my Stanley students and community very much.   I am so excited to have you in my classroom! 


In Spanish 1A, you will begin to understand, speak, read and write in Spanish - and have an opportunity to sample a little Hispanic culture.  Spanish 1A will cover Greetings, Numbers, Time & Dates, Likes and Dislikes, School, Hobbies/Activities, Food & Meals.


My background is in International Communication.  I received my Bachelor's Degree in Communication Studies from U.C.S.B., and my Teaching Credential from Saint Mary's College. I have lived and studied abroad in Costa Rica, Mexico and France, and speak Spanish, French and (of course) English fluently. 


I am passionate about Foreign Languages and Cultures, and hope that you enjoy your exposure to Spanish tremendously over the course of this year.
