Homework is due on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Make sure that you turn your work in on time! Many homework assignments in Spanish classes will be completed through the Vista Higher Learning Supersite.
Please review the school's late work policy below:
"Work turned in on the due date may receive up to 100% credit. Work turned in after the due date will receive up to 60% credit. Students have one early release (ER) to complete work, and then the late work is due the following Monday. If the work is not turned in by the following Monday, the grade becomes a hard zero. Students may ask teachers for an extension for work due. The deadline for asking for an extension is 4:00 pm the day before the assignment deadline. Teachers will grant the extension, however, excessive requests for extensions on assignments will be evaluated and addressed on an individual basis. The decision to grant or deny additional extensions lies within the discretion of the teacher. Teachers will make best efforts to assign major projects with a minimum of one week (7 days) notice so that students can budget their time and have at least one weekend to work on the major assignment."
Hola! Yo soy la maestra Maeghan McCormick. I joined the ATC team in the fall of 2015. I grew up in Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti, Michigan and moved to Santa Fe in 2001. I went to many colleges and universities (including St. John's College and the Santa Fe Community College) before finishing my education at UNM. I have a B.A. in Spanish and M.A. in Secondary Education. I am fascinated by anthropology, language and culture. I currently live in Santa Fe with my husband and two daughters. Outside of school I go rock climbing and illustrate Spanish language comic books.
