Elementary Spanish Program


Welcome! I'm Heather Norberg (Belinsky) and I teach Spanish to Kindergarteners-5th graders at South River and Tenniswood Elementary. I've been teaching in the district since August 2000 and I'm very excited to be your child's teacher this year. I use songs, games, TPR and skits to teach reading, writing, speaking and listening in Spanish. Your child will have Spanish once per week for 40-50 minutes.

In May 2000, I graduated with a bachelor's degree from Michigan State University in Psychology, Spanish and Education. Before becoming a teacher, I spent a summer taking classes at Universidad de Alcala de Henares in Spain and also participated in a MSU/OSU graduate program in the Dominican Republic. I earned my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Saginaw Valley University in May 2006. In 2011, I completed Central Michigan University's Master in Counseling program. I consider myself a lifelong learner; I am always trying to learn something that will help me become better at what I do.
In my spare time, I like to read, travel, be outdoors, camp and spend time with my daughter.

Why should my child learn a language?
