Spanish Student of the Week: Connor Smith


“Connor did everything necessary to raise his grades for quizzes,” reported Mrs. Gaitan, the seventh and eighth-grade Spanish teacher, in an interview with the Matador Messenger.

“At first I was confused on why my name had been called, but after finding out why I had been given this award, I found it surprising to be chosen for Spanish student of the week,” reported Conner Smith in an interview with The Matador Messenger.  

In Spanish, Connor is learning to read, write, and speak Spanish. He is also learning how to understand the language.

“What I enjoy about Spanish above everything else is to be able to learn about many different cultures and the differences between theirs and ours while in the process of learning to speak Spanish,” added Smith.

Conner shows “outstanding effort,” according to Gaitan.
