Welcome to your South Aiken High School Spanish I class! I am Señora Sincioco, your Spanish I instructor. Spanish I is the foundation for Spanish language acquisition. Much of the instruction will be in Spanish and emphasizes speaking, listening, reading, and writing in order to empower learners in Spanish at the novice level. In addition to practicing basic language skills, students will examine cultural practices and perspectives to gain a deeper understanding of Spanish speakers in local and global communities. By the end of the course, students will be able to create phrases, questions, and statements on familiar topics using their Spanish skills.

As your Spanish teacher (profesora), I would like to share my experience with Spanish with you. I graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2004 with my Master’s degree in Spanish.  I have a solid background in the language due to study and work abroad in Spain, Puerto Rico, Argentina, Dominican Republic, and Mexico.  In addition to teaching at South Aiken High School, I have taught at the University of South Carolina, Coastal Carolina Community College, and Metropolitan State University of Denver.  I personally understand the challenges of learning a foreign language. However, the benefits you will gain from becoming a proficient Spanish speaker are worth all of the work it takes to acquire a second language. I will support and guide you with plenty of humor, fun activities, real-world applications, and practical learning experiences to meet your individual learning needs.
