Spanish 2

Course Description

This course is designed for students beginning at level 1 of Spanish. At this level, students will build upon their receptive skills in listening and understanding the instructional lessons. Gradually, students will begin to use the target language to respond, ask questions, make requests, manipulate and discuss the lesson elements. Also, greater emphasis is placed on reading and writing skills. The culture of the various Spanish-speaking countries is also integrated into the instructional activities and reading materials.

R.I.S.E. is Tuesday mornings from 7:45am to 8:15am in room 3211.

Course Expectations

While students will not achieve mastery in Spanish at this level, students will be expected to work at building their skill levels as this is a process that builds upon itself. What is learned on Day 1 will continue to be very important throughout the entire course. We will constantly recycle concepts and topics explored in Spanish 1 even as we continue to grow and acquire new knowledge in Spanish 2. Therefore, students must come with a willingness to evolve as a Spanish learner.

My Bio

About Me

My name is Karla Estrada, and this is my sixth year working at Alpharetta High School. I am a native speaker of a Mexican (father) and an American (mother). I was born and raised in Mexico City where I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design and a Certificate as an ESL teacher. I worked for about 3 years in the POP and POS industry, and when my oldest child was born, I began teaching English as a second language to CEO's and managers in different companies.

8 years ago, my family and I moved to Alpharetta, to this wonderful community! I'm the proud mother of two amazing kids, both of them attended AHS, and my youngest just graduated from AHS! GO RAIDERS!

I am excited to share that this year, December 8th, after 2 years of hard work, I will be graduating from VSU from my Masters Program (MAT FLED)! 

In the classroom, my goal is to demonstrate that there are different ways to approach the way you can learn a new language. I believe that this can be achieved through establishing a teacher-student relationship built on respect and mutual support. I am honored to be a part of each and every one of my students' lives! I am passionate about what I do and very proud of where I come from. I enjoy sharing the culture, art, music, and FOOD of the Spanish speaking world with my students. So, get ready for the ride!

During my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, cooking, baking, traveling to new places and just enjoying life. 

Please do not hesitate to contact or email me with any questions or concerns throughout the year by emailing me at

I look forward to working with you this year.
