Welcome to Spanish at Ponderosa

Ponderosa's Spanish Instructor: 

Olivia Lester

Hello! My name is Olivia Lester, and I am teaching Spanish at Ponderosa Elementary School. I am so excited for this opportunity, and I know that the students will have a fun and rewarding experience in this class.

This year students are having Spanish class for an hour a week. Each unit taught will be based on the Thompson School District and Colorado World Language Academic Standards. I will be providing each student ample opportunities to explore the Spanish language and culture.
