Click here to get out of someone else's frame...


Welcome! I am a high school Spanish teacher in Massachusetts. I teach at a place called St. John's High School. We are in the process of integrating technology more and more in to our classrooms. To that end, I have created some PowerPoint presentations that I have used successfully in class. The links below will allow you to download the presentations directly. You must have PowerPoint or the PowerPoint viewer installed on your computer to view them. Otherwise you can just save them to your machine for your own use, and feel free to use / modify them as you like. In Internet Explorer, right-click the link, and then choose "save target as" to save a copy to your own computer. In Netscape, right-click, and choose "save link as" to do the same. If you do download and use them, please drop me a note to let me know. Have fun!!
