¡Hola! My name is Alessandra Thornton and I am the Spanish teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. A graduate of Adelphi University in Garden City, I hold my Bachelor's Degree in Spanish, and my Master's Degree in Adolescent Education in Spanish. This is my third year as a teacher at St. Dominic High School, and my fifth year teaching overall. I have lived and traveled abroad, and have many stories and experiences that have shaped my life and teaching thus far. I enjoy music (in almost all languages), singing, and dancing, and incorporate the three into my lessons and educational activities whenever possible. Attached are my course contracts for the 2017-2018 school year.
