World Languages Lead Teacher

Mrs. Sarah Pennica

The changing nature of our society has placed greater demands on students. In order to succeed in the twenty-first century, they will be required to acquire new communication skills. The acquisition of other languages will enable students to communicate across cultures and gain knowledge of other cultures in order to interact effectively within the community and global marketplace

The Canandaigua City School District World Languages Department, as a highly valued component of the CORE curriculum, is committed to inspiring a passion for language learning in students of all ability levels. We cultivate an engaging, relevant learning environment that encourages students to become leaders in a global community through a deep understanding, appreciation and tolerance of world languages and cultures.
