I am very excited to get to know each and every one of your children as they explore and grow in learning the Spanish language and about different Hispanic cultures.
Did you know that Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world?
At Dekalb Prep, Students receive Spanish instructions every four days for 45 minutes.
The program is based on a foreign language exploratory (FLEX) model, but is presented mostly in the target language. For more information on this type of program model please check FLEX
Please check out the Spanish website for information on vocabulary for each unit throughout the school year as well as grade specific activities and events.
Please always encourage your child to share what they have learned and use the language as much as possible outside of school.
Regular classroom behavioral agreements will be followed as well as the special Spanish class agreements. These agreements are: Yo miro. (I look.); Yo escucho. (I listen.); Yo levanto la mano. (I raise my hand.); Yo hablo español. (I speak Spanish.); Yo participo con la mente, las manos, y el corazón. (I participate with my mind, hands, and heart.). These will be discussed in class. Please see the attached description of the classroom agreements.
If you have any questions about the Spanish program or would like to schedule a conference, please do not hesitate to contact me by email at
