Re-take Policy

My goal is for your student to master how to speak Spanish.  Therefore, if your student does not initially do well on an assessment, I want for him/her to re-take that assessment.    My focus is on the students' confidence with speaking.  If they’re not quite there yet, I want for them to know that they are welcome to go back and try again.  


Success is the goal.  As strange as it may sound, grades are secondary to student confidence and success.   Thus, all students may re-take all assessments.  Period.  Furthermore, they may re-take their assessments at any point in the semester.  Re-takes will be scheduled for a mutually convenient time.
