Dear Parents and students

  My name is Yajaira Diaz and I would like to welcome your child to the Spanish class. This is my  14 th year of teaching Spanish as a Second Language.  I am originally from The Dominican Republic and moved to New York where I received my Bachelor's degree in Spanish Literature.  I completed my Master's degree in Applied Linguistics: Teaching Spanish as a Second Language.


  I am looking forward to getting to know both you, and your children, this year. In this class your child will engage in activities that will assist them in reading, writing, listening, and speaking Spanish. The course will cover vocabulary, grammar and will connect them the real world of Spanish speaking countries.
