Students in grades 3 – 5 will have Spanish instruction weekly.

French Immersion Students do not participate in the Spanish program.

School-wide activities will be planned to emphasize Spanish and French customs to help enhance student appreciation and understanding of cultures in other parts of the world.


Maria Acosta-Pratt
Spanish Teacher
I am originally from Colombia, South America but I have been living in the United States since 2002. This is my second year as a 3-5 Spanish teacher at Midway Elementary and I am thrilled to be part of such a wonderful school.

I attended the Universidad del Valle in Colombia and graduated with a B.A. in Modern Languages and Education. I also hold a Master’s degree in Teaching the Spanish Language and its Culture from the Universidad de Granada in Spain.

In my spare time I love reading, writing, drawing, gardening, and traveling. I am looking forward to another great year with our little mustangs!
