Señora Carpenter
¡Hola! My name is Dori Carpenter. I teach K-4 Spanish at Hope Valley, Ashaway and Richmond Elementary Schools in the Chariho Regional School District. I began teaching high school Spanish in 2010 and have been teaching at the elementary level in Chariho since 2014. ​​I studied Spanish and Secondary Education at Providence College and The University of Salamanca in Salamanca, Spain.

 Welcome back for another year of Spanish! I am looking forward to meeting my new students and seeing many familiar faces!
Kindergarteners are going to begin learning Spanish the first week of school by learning "Hola", "Amigos" and "Adiós". It may seem overwhelming to some of them at first because I will speak a lot of Spanish throughout class, but it won't be long before they are used to it and actually enjoy hearing and speaking it! 

First through fourth grade will continue their Spanish lessons as usual. In kindergarten and first grade the focus is more on listening and speaking. I start to incorporate more writing in second grade and by third grade the students will be doing some reading as well. Fourth graders will be reading the book El Capibara con Botas. Last year's fourth graders really enjoyed it!

New students who have not learned Spanish before have no need to worry. I will give them notes with the vocabulary that they missed from past years, and other students will be happy to help them with anything they don't know. It won't be long before they start picking up the language.

Feel free to email me throughout the year if you have any questions or concerns. My email address is [email protected]

Hasta pronto,
Dori Carpenter
