Our Spanish class takes place at 1:00pm on Tuesdays. This is an introduction level Spanish class for K-2nd grade learners.
About the instructor and her method:
Hortensia (Tensy) Benítez is a native of Altamirano, Mexico. She studied Early Childhood Education in Mexico City and worked as a teacher in Mexico City and her hometown of Altamirano before coming to the United States. Here in Delaware, she worked in the Red Clay Consolidated School District for a number of years, teaching in English-only, Bilingual and Dual-Language programs. As a native speaker of Spanish, the enthusiasm she brings to the classroom is contagious, and students truly enjoy the experience of learning from her.
Hortensia believes that children learn best while having fun and incorporates that philosophy into her instructional methods. Her proprietary program lets children learn Spanish through singing, storytelling, games, and crafts. That is why the classes are so effective, and the reason that Tensy makes course development a never-ending process, constantly seeking out new themes, activities, and songs to make the Spanish-learning experience a fun journey of discovery, exploration, and adventure.
