¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español!

Photo of John Sifert Spanish Teacher, portrait.
My name is Señor (John) Sifert.  I am extremely excited to be starting my first year here at Belmond-Klemme!  This will be my 19th year teaching.  I have lived all my life in Belmond, except for my first 2 teaching years which were spent in San Antonio, Texas. Next, I taught for 4 years in Dows.  For the past 12 years, I taught Spanish, Tech, and Character/Leadership Development classes at CAL CSD.

My amazing wife, Melissa and I have 5 terrific kids: Caden, a freshman, Cooper and Cohen, who are entering 7th grade, and finally Callum and Clementine, who will be starting 3rd grade this fall. (YES, 2 sets of twins.   NO, none are identical.)

I hope to build on the successes of the past Spanish program and add my own spin on language learning.  I am revved up about this new school year, and can't wait to get re-acquainted with my hometown district!!!!!

¡â€‹Hasta pronto!
