  • Dear Parents,
    My name is Kathy Cruz and I will be your child's Spanish teacher this year.  I was born and raised in Lima, Peru and moved with my mom to New Jersey in 1989.  I have a Bachelors Degree in Languages and Culture Studies from the Richard Stockton University, NJ and a Masters Degree in Spanish Literature and Linguistics from New Mexico State University.  I hold a K-12 Spanish teaching certification. I have been teaching Spanish since 2010.  I am excited for your child to join my class.

    I believe that any child can learn Spanish!  I hope to partner with you and your child to find his/her best style of learning and to impart as much cultural and linguistic learning to encourage your child to pursue Spanish. 
    Please feel free to contact me if you should need and or share any information that will help us to make your child a more successful learner.  The best way to reach me is via email me at I will respond to you within 24 hours during school days.
    Your child should consult our Google Classroom and or their study buddies for homework/assignments/projects/tests/quizzes information.  If you are interested in specific assignments, they will be listed on our Google Classroom throughout the school year.
    I look forward to meeting with you and speaking with you during the year.
    Respectfully Yours,
    Kathy Cruz
