Educational Philosophy: This instructor believes it is her role to present important information with clarity, paced for permanent acquisition of material, and organized so that students can recognize a larger context for individual lessons. Secondly, she believes it is essential to create a warm, inclusive culture within the classroom so that students will want to communicate and enjoy the trail and error process of learning a new language.

Late Submission of Course Materials: In the event of unavoidable absence, homework assignments will be accepted the following class session without penalty. Homework assignments not submitted receive a grade of zero. In the event of unavoidable absence, unit tests may be taken one to two class sessions after the test date without penalty.
