A message to students and parents...
       Hello!  My name is Bonnie Cavanaugh Pechulis.  I have been teaching Spanish in Baltimore County, Maryland for 18 years, first at Middle River Middle School and then at Parkville Middle School and Center of Technology.  I teach seventh and eighth grade beginning Spanish.  My first exposure to foreign languages began with French at Holabird Middle School, continuing at Dundalk High School, where I added Spanish to my studies.  I continued with Spanish as a major at Towson University, receiving both a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Secondary Education.  I also studied for one summer in Mexico City and traveled extensively throughout the country during subsequent visits.
        I currently live in the Towson area of Baltimore County with my husband and two children and an assortment of pets.  My son is a sophomore in high school and my daughter is a junior in college.  In addition to reading, gardening and navigating the web, I love to travel.  I have accompanied a school group to central Spain and have visited many regions in the United States where Spanish is spoken, including California, Texas, Nevada, and New Mexico.  I hope to return to Mexico in the summer of 2000, when the Spanish department at Parkville Middle will be conducting a tour of Mexico City and Yucatan.
        My goal for the 1999-2000 school year is to incorporate computer technology into my lessons.  I hope that you find my web site useful as a starting point for your research of the Spanish-speaking world on the Internet both in and outside of class.  I will continue to update it as the year progresses.
        Finally, as your eighth grade team leader, please email me if you have any suggestions,concerns or questions.  Your eighth grade teachers are committed to providing you with a challenging academic program and to help make the transition to high school as successful as possible.  We want this year to be your best one yet at Parkville!
