¡Bienvenido!

Thank you for stopping my my webpage.

My name is Mrs. Booth.  I teach Spanish at QACHS.  For the 2019-2020 school year, I am teaching Spanish I (Spring 2020), II (Fall 2019), III Honors (Spring 2020), and IV (Fall 2019).   In just about every class, prepare yourselves to do a little of every mode of communication, meaning activities related to speaking, reading, listening, and writing in español.

La Profesora:  A little about your maestra.  I received my Master of Arts in Teaching from Towson University in May 2017, and have a Bachelor of Arts in Latin American Studies with a minor in Politics from the University of California at Santa Cruz. 

I spent my internship year working in Anne Arundel County at Brooklyn Park Middle School and then at Annapolis High School.  As part of my teaching certification, I completed four university level Spanish courses: Spanish phonetics, literature of Spain, literature of Latin America, and peoples and cultures of Latin America and Spain.  I have also lived and studied abroad in Mexico, Ecuador, and Costa Rica. 

I am really originally from California, but have been living in the greater Washington DC area since 2008 when my husband and I came here for work with the federal government.  After many years of federal government service, I decided to change careers and live out a long held desire to become a Spanish teacher.  Without equivocation, I can say that I have made the right decision. 

Esperanza: I hope all my students see the great opportunities that learning another language can bring.  Knowing another language truly provides limitless possibilities and benefits. Foreign language acquisition strengths your mind, broadens your personal and global perspective, and increases your business and employment prospects.  Above all, knowing a second language allows you to connect to people, places, and ways of thinking that you are least expecting.  Entonces, preparamos para el viaje, y comenzaremos con los próximos pasos.
