About Me

My name is Dulce Segovia. I am delighted to be at MMS teaching Spanish.

I have been a teacher for 19 years. I have taught all levels of high school English, AP Spanish, and both Sheltered and Clustered ESL.

I look forward to working with all of you this year!

 Class Expectations

1. Be prepared:  Have your homework, notebook, pen, pencil & paper in class every day. 
2. Participate: This is a proficiency course.  That means that you have to use the language on a regular basis. Students are required to participate in class by answering questions, asking questions, singing, and participating in group activities. 
3. Come to School:  Success depends on active participation in the language.  Therefore, attendance is very important.  
4. Make up Missed Work:  Make sure that you make up all work that you miss from being absent.
5. Complete your Homework:  Assignments will be given on a daily basis.  Homework is checked in class and credit is given for completion.  
6. Be Honest:  Cheating on any assignment will result in a zero.  Cheating is considered using, giving or receiving unauthorized help.  Also, students may not use software or the Internet to translate any material from English to Spanish for any assignment.  This is considered plagiarizing and will result in a zero for the assignment and a referral to administration.
7.  Have Good Behavior:  Above all, students should be courteous and respectful to the teacher and each other.  Students should never behave in a way that disrupts the class by preventing the teacher from teaching or the other students from learning.  All behavior policies will be strictly enforced.
