Welcome to Mr. Bardin's Class!
Hello and welcome to my class this year! My name is Scott Bardin and I am thrilled to be able to teach you this year. I graduated from Weber State University in 2009 with a Bachelor's degree in Sales and Customer Service and then graduate with a Master's degree in Secondary Education in 2012. It is an exciting time we are experiencing this year and I hope that I can make it as smooth as possible for all of you. This is my 9th year teaching and I have taught many different subjects over the years. Those subjects include Spanish, Dual Immersion, P.E., ELL, and Art. My main focus is Spanish and Dual Immersion. In my spare time I enjoy reading, playing 'old man' softball, and just hanging out with my family. My hobbies include reading, playing videogames, watching baseball, and fishing. Below is a short description of each class that I will be teaching this year.
The following classes are what I teach at TMS. Click on the class header to be linked to the Canvas page.
DLI Culture, History, and Media
This is a class that is all about looking at the differences in the products, practices, and perspectives of our culture and that of Hispanic culture throughout history. We will dive into history beginning before the time period before Christopher Columbus. This class is taught all in Spanish and the the students are expected to speak Spanish 100% of the time.
Latinos in Action
This class is a leadership class designed to give Latino students the opportunity to lead and give service around the community. This is a student directed course and we will have various service projects and events throughout the year. The students will also be required to do some tutoring with elementary students while they are in the class.
This is a basic Spanish class designed to help students learn beginning vocabulary and start using it in their daily lives. The students may not come out of this class speaking fluently at year's end, but they will have a strong foundation where they can begin to build their Spanish vocabulary through Reading, Writing, Listening to, and Speaking Spanish each day in class.
This is a continuation of the Spanish 1 and 2 class with a little more difficulty. In this class, students will begin to learn more complex verb and sentence structures to help them build upon what they learned in Spanish 1 and 2. They will be working toward fluency as speaking Spanish in class will be a bigger requirement for this year.
This course is designed to test and improve your strength, endurance, cardio, agility, and flexiblity levels through the use of different sports and physical activities.
That's all from me right now. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you this year and I hope that we can all have a great year. Pura Vida!
