About me
Sra. Hoover: A native of Puerto Rico and a graduate of Penn State, I've been teaching Spanish since 1991. I have been at Dauphin County Technical School since 2005 where I have taught Spanish, Reading, English as a Second language and served as Interim Assistant Principal for the 2013-14 school year. I truly enjoy my work at DCTS and I hope that all my students find my course enjoyable.
    Learning Spanish provides many benefits: the ability to meet new people and learn about other cultures, vocabulary expansion in English, possible wage increases at jobs for knowing a second language, and better test scores on standardized tests.
   This year seniors should plan on attempting to incorporate their language skills in their senior project. All students are encouraged to think about how they can use their second language skills to affect change and make an impact in their environment.
    Students will use the Quia site for taking quizzes, practicing activities and linking to other sites used in class. Students will earn bonus points per marking period for using the site regularly outside of class. Use your username and password in the student zone in order to keep track of your activities. I have included some links with vocabulary related to shops.
