    "We are not myths of the past, ruins in the jungle, or zoos. We are people and we want to be respected, not to be victims of intolerance and racism." Rigoberta Menchu, activist for indigenous Guatemalan people, winner of the 1992 Nobel Peace Prize.

    "If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don't be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning 'Good morning' at total strangers." Maya Angelou
  • Hello, I am Mr. Blanton, thanks for visiting my website. I graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in Spanish and Physical Education. This will be my third year teaching Spanish at Hibriten. I am really excited about the new school year. We are going to be getting a brand new text book. As a teacher I have a lot of high expectations of my students. Since a foreign language can be difficult at times, it is imperative that students study for at least twenty minutes a night. It can be really easy to fall behind if you don't study frequently enough. I don't give a lot of written homework but I do give quizzes on a regular basis to check that each student is grasping the vocabulary or grammar we are working on. Learning Spanish is a building process, so the concepts we go over in the first chapter will be used throughout the semester. If you ever need extra help or tutoring, I will be glad to help although I will usually only be available before school due to after school responsibilities. Thanks a lot and I look forward to a great year!
