My phone number: (402) 557-3300 extension 3317076 (leave a message)

  

 I am Mrs. McCarville (formerly Ms. Ogburn)--
I got married this summer 2013.

Spanish teacher - Originally from Iowa - Creighton University graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Secondary Education and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership (Secondary School Administration).  I have been teaching at Central since 2007.  I teach Spanish 1-2 and 3-4.

I have traveled throughout Spain, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic, as well as other non-Spanish speaking countries/states.  I love baseball~ especially the Atlanta Braves and Kansas City Royals.  The Baltimore Orioles are alright too :)  During football season, I'm an Iowa Hawkeye fan! --------------------------------------


September is Hispanic Heritage Month, so in honor of that we will do research to learn more about important Hispanic people.  This will be for both Spanish 1-2 & Spanish 3-4.


One of my favorite websites: http://www.newseum.org/todaysfrontpages/flash/  This website lets you read the front page of newspapers from all over the world in the native language!  I especially love reading what makes headlines in Spanish speaking countries.

Newspaper from Spain:
http://www.elmundo.es/

In the Spring, students from both Spanish 1-2 and 3-4 will have the opportunity to use their Spanish out in the community through a project.  The project will consist of speaking Spanish at a restaurant, attending Cinco de Mayo celebrations in South Omaha, and visiting El Museo Latino http://www.elmuseolatino.org/  to see art and culture.  It is a fascinating experience that shows students how what we learn in class can be applied in real life.


Holidays
that students will learn about throughout the course of taking Spanish 1-2 or Spanish 3-4 with me: Mexico's Independence Day, Day of the Dead, La Navidad (Los tres Reyes Magos), and Cinco de Mayo.

Students will also be exposed to a variety of Spanish / Latin American cultural music. 

All students are encouraged to visit El Museo Latino in South Omaha for more Spanish culture exposure, and even the Joslyn Art Museum for their occasional Spanish exhibits.  There are even some excellent restaurants with an authentic Hispanic atmosphere in South Omaha, ask me about my favorites.  I would highly advise all students to practically use their Spanish for the betterment of the Omaha community.
