Welcome to Mrs. Pereira's webpage for the 2016-2017 school year!
The purpose of this site is to help students stay focused and up-to-date with classroom expectations and activities. All pertinent information will be distributed in class, however this site will serve as a guide and offer you the opportunity to contact me outside of school through email. From time to time you may be asked to access this site to gather information that is necessary for an assignment. As the creator of this site, I do reserve the right to alter any information at any time. Therefore, please keep in mind that this site is a guide... Classroom instruction is most important!
If you want to learn the language....you need to speak, read, write, listen, and surround yourself with Spanish as much as possible! Please understand that it is necessary to try, try, try!
And most important....Our class is ALWAYS a judge-free zone!!!
