•             In Costa Rica                                            



    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! With current events, I think it is safe to say that this year will be an adventure. Are you ready? I am! 

    I am Señora Akwa, the Spanish teacher here at Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn. I am also the HMS Speech Coach. I have been a teacher at HMS since 1997 and have taught a variety of things over the years. I have lived in Hartley since 1997 and have two sons that graduated from HMS. On this website you will find lesson plans for the classes I teach, as well as information about our speech program and information about the trips we have taken to Latin America. Due to the coronavirus, our 2020 trip to Costa Rica was delayed, so we plan to travel this year. 

    This year has brought us some unique challenges, but we can do this. There is still so much to learn and explore. Join me for the adventure!
