Ms. Kelley Ichaso
Hello, I am a Spanish 3, Spanish Honors 3 and AP teacher at OHS. We will be using Schoology so the students are able to see what activities/topics we will discuss on a daily basis. In the digital classroom the students are not only able to see the activities for the day, but are also able to upload/download assignments necessary to be successful in class. We will also be using the online textbook, Avancemos. My daily schedule is this:
G day B day
1G Spanish Honors 3 1B Planning
2G Planning 2B AP Spanish Language and Culture
3G Spanish 3 3B Spanish Honors 3
4G Spanish 3 4B Leadership Team Meeting
I am available after school, during Eagle Block, and in cases of critical need during my planning block.
I received my first Bachelors in Spanish through the University of Mary Washington in 2007; to complete this program I did a semester abroad in Spain with the University of Michigan and Universidad de Salamanca in Avila. I began teaching at OHS in August of 2007. In 2010, I obtained my first Masters through online courses in Curriculum and Instruction through University of Phoenix. I completed my Masters in Spanish which focused on Spanish linguistics through George Mason University.
I believe that Spanish is one of the most useful languages in this era of globalization. My philosophy of teaching Spanish is that all students deserve the opportunity to become bilingual. In fostering this goal I believe that respect for all students regardless of their background knowledge, experiences, etc. can be used to help each student be successful in learning Spanish.
