Mrs. Dorcas Acosta
¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español 3 honores, español 4 honores y español AP!I am Dorcas Acosta, and I teach Honors Spanish 3, honors Spanish 4 and AP Spanish. I also sponsor Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica. I started teaching at OHS in 2009. I was born and raised in Southern California by Cuban parents; thus, Spanish was the first language I learned. My parents instilled in me a great love and appreciation of the Spanish language and Latin culture, as well as the benefits of speaking more than one language fluently. Therefore, it is my passion to instill in others what I have learned. I attended California State University, Northridge from 1992-1996 and earned my degree in Spanish Language and Culture. I'm also certified in Gifted Education.
I enjoy spending time with my husband and our three children. My oldest daughter is a math teacher in Coweta County, my middle daughter is a senior in college graduating in May, and my son is a junior in high school. We love to travel and embrace the opportunity to learn about different cultures and languages. I also have a passion for cooking.
I look forward to working with you this 2022-2023 school year!
