SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – In an academic collaborative effort that connects two diocesan schools, Holy Savior Academy in South Plainfield offers Spanish I to its eighth grade class, with Immaculata High School’s World Language Chair and Spanish instructor Vanessa Roulett, teaching the students.
The class, which integrates live, two way video and audio, along with other multimedia resources, meets every day with Roulett in Somerville and the students in their South Plainfield classroom. It has been a great opportunity for both schools to partner and to offer Holy Savior students the chance to enhance and improve their knowledge and understanding of the Spanish language and culture.
“We are so grateful to Immaculata for partnering with Holy Savior Academy to offer our eighth graders this unique experience. They are the direct beneficiaries of having Spanish I in eighth grade, acquiring the in-depth knowledge of the language and experiencing the dynamics of a high school class,” said Holy Savior Principal Carol Woodburn, adding, “We look forward to continuing this phenomenal program next year.”
“For me as a professional educator, this class initially took me out of my comfort zone,” said Roulett, “But it has truly been very rewarding and I am proud that this program has been developed so well. I look forward to continuing this collaboration next year.”
