    About Me: ¡Hola! Soy el profesor Root. I am your Spanish teacher this year. It is my 18th year teaching Spanish and seventh year here at Williams Field. Over the course of many years, I have taught all levels of Spanish, including AP and and Dual Enrollment. I also teach the AVID elective course for freshman. I am a husband and a father of four children, ages 12-18.
    Parents: Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Email is generally the best way to contact me. I generally will return an email or phone call within 24 school day hours, if not the same day. Please be sure to check Synergy, our gradebook system, on a regular basis. It can be found here.
    We will use the HUSD Canvas site for course content. Here is the link for the HUSD Canvas page. Students typically log on using their school Windows credentials. If you would like to observe your student and see what he or she can see in Canvas for assignments and activities, please email me and request that access.
