Students Excel on Spanish Exams

Mackinsey Stephenson

A few weeks ago all students who take Spanish classes participated in a national Spanish exam. The individuals who took these exams seem to do a great job based on the complimentary letter that was sent to the school below:

Congratulations to several Spanish students from Teague High School who attained national recognition for excellent performance on 2018
National Spanish Examinations.

Students from Teague High School earned a total of 3 silver and 1 bronze medals along with 11 honorable mentions.  “Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious,” said Kevin Cessna-Buscemi, National Director of the Exams, “because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with
over 146,000 students participating in 2019.”

Students from THS have a long history of high achievement on these exams and were taught by Spanish teachers, Sr. Miguel Rodriguez, and Sra. Heidy Shields.

The National Spanish Examinations are administered each year in grades 9 through 12 and are sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
