• During Black History Month, We will take time during the Spanish class to discuss important contributions of Black Americans, both living and deceased.  History is not my area of expertise, so students are encouraged to share pertinent information in class.  I will try to have a fact or concept related to Black History Month each day, in case no student wishes to share.  Black History Month is for the benefit and education of students and staff members of all racial backgrounds, it is an opportunity to celebrate and learn about the contributions of Black Americans.
