Information about SPLASH Class
Hello, for those you who don’t know me yet, my name is Vicky Iglesias, and I am one of the SPLASH teachers at Unionville Elementary. We have a team of four teachers this year: the veterans (Miss Rodriguez and I) and the new acquisitions (Miss Estrada and Miss Chan).
We work with kindergarten and first grade children, but we are not regular teachers. Our students are not regular students either. From the very first moment they enter our classes, they not only need to learn everything that is expected from a kindergartener or first grader, but they have to learn it and master it in Spanish. Yes! You read that right! They have to do everything in Spanish!
I am currently teaching first grade. I decided to write to all of you because almost every day a parent, colleague, or friend (including my own mother) asks me one of the following questions: “Are the children speaking Spanish yet?”, “Should I put my child in the SPLASH program?”, “Do they do the same things that the other classes do?”, “Will they be able to read in English?” The questions go on and on.
