Mr. Jorge Olmos
Hello Smithfield Middle School community.
Welcome to the Spanish website. I hope we have a fantastic year full of Spanish.
My name is Jorge Olmos and I will be the Spanish teacher this year. I am from Colombia and I have been an ESL/Spanish teacher for ten years in Colombia and USA. I got a bachelor degree in Modern Languages and a Master of Arts in Linguistics and TESOL. My goal as a world language teacher is to open a door to students, so they can get a gist about a foreign language and/or culture.
