Mrs. Norma Siraj
I am Señora Siraj and I am delighted that I will be your Spanish teacher this academic school year, 2023-2024. I have enjoyed teaching Spanish for the last 20 years and look forward to another Fantastic year! I have taught Spanish I at Sartartia MS and, Spanish 1 & 2 at Doerre Intermediate for Klein ISD. At Quail Valley Elementary and Burton Elementary I taught lst grade Bilingual. In 2006 I was honored to be selected as Teacher of the Year.
My goal this year is to excite you about learning Spanish through music, rhymes, conversation, repetition, dialogue/skits and yes, homework!
You will gain an appreciation of the similarities and differences between your culture and those of Hispanic countries. Finally, I will help you attain an acceptable degree of proficiency in the target language. The four basic skills include: speaking, listening, reading and writing.
Come to class prepared to learn, participate and have fun!
