Letter from Mr. Cogdill:
Hola Chicos. I am looking foward to having you in my Spanish classes this year. I am very passionate about learning and teaching Spanish! Together we will explore the basics of the Spanish language, look at culture and events. You will have the opportunity to practice the language through the use of technology, working with partners and in small groups as well as by participating in a variety of different class activities. Out side of teaching, I love running-I have run two full marathons, hiking, camping, and traveling. I am looking foward to having an exciting school year!
