All About Mrs. Isaacs
Degrees and Certifications:
Education Degree Teacher of Spanish K-12 New Jersey Certification International Master Degree in Teaching Spanish.
Welcome to Spanish Class again!! I am back at FLC and I am very excited to have your child as a student in my Spanish class this year again!!. My name is Angela P. Isaacs. You will hear your child refer to me as “Señora Isaacs”. This will be my 13th year teaching Spanish in the Freehold Borough School District. I am a wife and mother of two handsome boys, ages 20 and 21. My husband and I are originally from Colombia, South America.
This year with your help, I intend to grab your child’s attention and spark his or her imagination, showing your child the world of possibilities opened to them by learning another language. In keeping with the goal of the Spanish Program, we will provide the best quality instruction, so your child may enjoy the benefit of learning a second language, by introducing many new and exciting aspects of the Spanish language and culture using a variety of meaningful and enjoyable teaching methods and strategies.
Spanish class for FLC will be held once a week for a forty minutes period. (kindergarten will have Spanish class 2 times per week this year-80 minutes per week). Grades will be based mostly on class participation, behavior, homework completion, attitude, and disposition.
In order to ensure that we have a successful and rewarding year in Spanish, we have to establish our rules regarding behavior and responsibility in class. As with all other teachers, we want to have a classroom where students and teachers respect one another, and each other’s person, property, and space. As with all other classes, students will raise their hands in order to speak, will ask permission to get up from their seat, and will focus their attention on class matters. Most importantly, students must bring a positive attitude to every class, as a positive attitude makes students more open to learning thereby reaping greater rewards and satisfaction.
As one of your child’s teachers, I count on your support in motivating your child to achieve all they can as a student of a new language, and I urge you to ask your child what they have learned in their Spanish class, as they love to share what they know. Expressing what they learned will only reinforce their knowledge.
I thank you for the opportunity to broaden your child’s capability to accept and better understand other cultures. I am always at your service should there be any questions or concerns. I look forward to an exciting and rewarding year.
