Jose F. Olascoaga, Ph.D

Spanish Teacher

Spanish at Seminole H.S.

I currently teach the classes of Spanish I, Spanish III, and Spanish IV at Seminole High School. In my classes you learn many important things about Spanish language and culture. Among other things, you learn how to greet Spanish speakers, to introduce yourself, and to talk about people, activities, clothing, food, school, sports, hobbies, health, and places. You study the Spanish grammar, at both the beginning and the intermediate levels, in order to communicate with others orally or by writing. And you also learn about the geography, literature, and culture of the Spanish-speaking countries. Isn’t this excited?

Grading Policy

The district grading policy is 50% for daily work (class work, homework, and quizzes) and 50% for tests and major projects. For each 6-weeks period, my students receive about 10 daily grades and 4 test/project grades.

Assignments turned in late for any reason other than absences are subject to a penalty of two points less per each day of delay. After the final day of grading period (at the end of a 6-week period) no late work is accepted. Work not turned in due to absences is accepted without penalty according to district policy (i.e., the number of days absent plus one day). However, each case is considered on an individual basis. 

Classroom Management Plan

Students are expected to behave in ways that allow themselves and others to learn, be on task, responsible, and polite at all times.

Disruptive behavior will be dealt with along the following guidelines:

First offense:  Verbal warning and conference with the student.

Second offense:  First lunch detention.

Third offense:  Second lunch detention.      

Thereafter:  Direct disciplinary referral to the office.

If disruptive behavior continues in the classroom, I send the student to the office immediately, and recommend conference with the parent/guardian.
