Bienvenidos a Español 1 y 2 con la Sra. Stowers!!

Welcome to Spanish 1 and 2! I am so excited to have your student in my class. This is my fifth year at MISD. I graduated from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin with a BA in Spanish. I have taught Spanish for 11 years ranging from preschool to high school. I am married and have three beautiful daughters. I have a sophomore at UIW, a 11th grader at MHS and a 6th grader at Oak Hills Jr High. We have lived in Montgomery for 16 years. I am originally from Odessa, Texas but I have lived in San Antonio and Waco before coming to Montgomery.

Our students in Spanish 1 and Spanish 2 will be learning vocabulary, grammar and Hispanic culture. The students will be expected to study every night the vocabulary and grammar for each chapter. Students will also need a folder or a specific divider in a large notebook to keep chapter schedules and resource materials.

Lake Creek High School

Late Work & Make-Up Work Policy

Late Work Policy:

Late work will not be accepted for full credit. Late is any time after the assignment is collected by the teacher.

  • Work turned in 1 school day (one class period) or less after the due date will reflect a 20 point or 20% loss of credit.

  • Work turned in 2 school days (2 class periods) late will reflect a 40 point or 40% loss of credit.

Except for extenuating circumstances, work will not be accepted more than 2 school days
(2 class periods) after the due date. Do not confuse with make-up work after being absent.


In addition, please note:

  • AP courses will not accept late work.

  • Long term or major assignments will not be taken late.

  • An assignment graded in class will not be taken late.

Make-Up Work Policy:

This policy can be found on page 3 of the LCHS Student/Parent Handbook.

Students are responsible for obtaining work they miss due to absences. It is understood that the nature of some work make it impossible to complete, e.g., science lab, group activities, etc.

Students have the same number of class days missed to complete work and the work will be due the class meeting following. For example, 2 days missed - the work will be due on or before the third day back (2 missed days plus 2 days attended to turn in work). In certain circumstances where a prolonged illness is involved, an extension of this limit may be arranged between student and teacher.

Exceptions to the normal make-up policy would be where in certain situations where the deadline was communicated-Example: research paper due on or before May 3rd.

Exams missed are to be taken outside of class time within the make-up period at the convenience of the teacher.

Students are usually informed of exams in advance. Pre-announced exams will be taken when the student returns to school after being absent unless other arrangements are made at the teacher’s discretion.

Students who are truant will not be able to receive credit for make-up work or exams.

A suspension will be considered an extenuating circumstance for attendance purposes and make-up work will be allowed for 70% credit of work completed. Failure to do the work within the designated time may result in a grade of zero.
