Señora Mills’ Spanish 1 Tigers
Weekly Update 9/6/2015
Also, we accessed our online practice site on Thursday. It is called SuperSite and you can click on www.vhlcentral.com for your student to access it. The students logged in and worked on three activities that I assigned to them. Many students did not finish in class; they will need to finish these activities at home or in ELT.
We have also been working on the Spanish alphabet. The kids have had a good time learning an alphabet song, and they will have a formative on Wednesday over the letters of the Spanish alphabet. This is their first verbal assessment, and they seem a little nervous about it!
- Greetings and farewells
- Asking "How are you?" and answering
- Introducing yourself and others

A Little About Señora Mills
I have two Bachelor's degrees--one in Journalism from the University of Georgia and one in Spanish Education from Missouri Western State University. I also have my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I went back to school to become a Spanish teacher because I had met so many awesome people from all over the world, and I wanted to positively impact others to seek out global experiences. Travel is my passion, and I love to discover and experience cultures different than my own.
I have two beautiful children, a patient husband, and two crazy cats. When I'm not teaching, you can find me cheering on my kids in their many activities--from ice hockey to dancing to soccer.
