Hola my name is Alejandra Garcia, and I am the Spanish teacher at Saint Mary Star of the Sea School. This will be my twelfth year teaching at Saint Mary Star of the Sea School. I have a BA In Child Development from Point Loma Nazarene University. I feel honored to have the opportunity to teach at the school that both of my sons attended from preschool through 8th grade. Our Spanish program is offered to students in Kn through 8th grade. With a curriculum based on the 5C’s of World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages – communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities – students learn the basics of the Spanish language and become active communicators who develop self-confidence in language while gaining a respect for culture. Our middle school Spanish curriculum mirrors a high school level program in which students complete levels 1-3 by the end of 8th grade.
I am looking forward to meeting you and your child and I invite you to speak with me further about the Spanish program if you have any questions. Please call the office with any request to meet and I will be happy to contact you to set up to arrange a time to meet.
