• Dear parents & guardians,
      
    My name is Mr. Heikell & I am excited for this new school year. I am delighted to have the opportunity to share my knowledge of the Spanish language & many World cultures with your child this year. I have taught Spanish for nineteen years now & have been in several districts in Texas. I have taught all five levels of Spanish & I am currently teaching Introduction to Spanish & Exploring Languages. I have taught both High School & Middle School in Texas this will be my third year at Woodcreek.

    I initially learned Spanish by living in Spain over twenty-five years ago. I had the opportunity to live there for two years & I had the wonderful privilege of seeing the colorful & complex culture of that Iberian nation. I lived in many cities including Barcelona, Tarragona, Reus, Alicante & Murcia. Upon returning back home, I majored in Spanish at California State University of Sacramento & received my Bachelors degree in Spanish with a minor in education.  I am certified by the State of Texas as a public educator and I am also certified as a Spanish Advanced Placement teacher.

    I am married with three wonderful children. Our daughter is a senior at BYU Idaho & the middle child is serving a two year church mission in Ogden, Utah. The youngest is a Junior in High School. They are all a great blessing in our lives & growing up fast. As a parent, I understand the need for knowledge about your child's schooling. I will provide tools to help aid you in navigating your child's foreign language class this year. In turn, the kids will be given tools to help them be successful in their studies. Ask them about our daily activities, the vocabulary & activities we are doing in class. Have them show you the Quizlet vocabulary sets & websites made available to them.

    I appreciate & applaud all that you do for your children and I look forward to meeting you & your children this school year. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you & your child this year. I am only an email away.

    ‚ÄčSincerely,

    Mr. Heikell
