     ¡¡Bienvendios a Bioscience High School!!  Welcome to Bioscience High School!  It is my pleasure this year to be part of the Freshman team.  I am also the advisor of the Spanish National Honor Society aka la Sociedad honoraria hispana, el capítulo Ellen Ochoa.  También soy asesora del club de la Sociedad honoraria hispánica

    According to the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), there are 5 goals that each language learner should work to achieve:  Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons and Communities.    Our goal is to continually incorporate learning opportunities that incorporate these 5C's. 

    As a language learner, I encourage all students to find opportunities around them to engage themselves in language, in the classroom and outside of the classroom.  Here in Phoenix, there are so many opportunities for students to engage themselves in Spanish culture and language with Spanish speaking  radio stations, television stations, newspapers, restaurants, stores, people, etc.
