Our Spanish teacher is Mrs. Ana-Rosa Mellado. This is Mrs. Mellado fourth year of teaching Spanish here at Christ the King School.

She and her husband have lived in Springfield for many years and feel blessed to embrace their new country, the United States. She has taught Spanish in this country in a classroom setting as well as in private tutoring sessions. She is looking forward to teaching Spanish to our students as well as introducing them to the many cultural aspects and traditions of the Spanish speaking countries of the world.
Spanish classes will be every Wednesday during the students’ study time. The 7th graders will be in Level 1 Spanish. The 8th graders will be in Level 2 Spanish. Eighth graders can only take Level 2 Spanish if they have already taken Level 1 Spanish. Our current class schedule does not allow us to offer a combined 7th and 8th grade Level 1 class.
