Hi! I am Ms. Mariella; I´m Peruvian.

Antonio and I are married for over 20 years and have two adorable children: Daniella (9) & Antonio (18).
Class time: 40 minutes (5 days a week) - I want to create a non threatening environment - Teach in a fun way: games, songs, role play, movement, bingo, etc. (less writing at first) How do I teach Spanish? SPANISH AS AN ADITIONAL LANGUAGE (SAL)
- Your help and communication is extremely important. - Please e-mail me anything that you think I need to know to help your child be happier at school. if it’s too hard for your kid. if he/she didn’t understand something. if homework hasn’t been completed (and there is a good reason for it…) - Emotional component: it is important for the kids to see you happy in Peru…
