Ortiz, Anamaria (Spanish)


Parent Night Video


Hola, I am Anamaria (Velasco) Ortiz and I am affectionately known as “Maestra.” I have taught Spanish at Northland Preparatory Academy for the past 20 years. Our school has been through a ton of changes and I am very glad I have been a part of its community for so long.   Previously, I have taught all levels of Spanish but will be teaching only Spanish I and II this coming school year.  I love the language and the culture. I am Mexican American but I identify as Chicana.   I have three kids, one graduated last year and one will be a junior this year at NPA.  My youngest goes to Marshall Magnet School.  I am a fourth generation Flagstaff native.  I am very active in the community and have a special place in my heart for the outdoors.  I welcome you to my Spanish I or Spanish II class for the 2021-2022 school year.  Together we will have a great year!

Supplies for SPANISH I and II  2021-2022 school year:

1  College Ruled Composition Book

A laptop or tablet to do homework and access Google Classroom

2 – 4 packages of 3×5 index cards

4 different colored pens or pencils (for note taking)
