My name is Tom Warrick (Sr. Tomás) and I head up the LOTE Department here in Decatur.  My goal has been for 25 years to make students interested and excited about language learning.  I am not a native language-learner and it has taken me YEARS to reach the level that I am at today.  However, this has allowed me to see where students are struggling because...well, I likely struggled with those same concepts as well and I have developed many tools/tricks to help students overcome those obstacles.  I'm here to help and make students grow.  I'm glad your student will be joining me on this adventure! Vámanos!

  • About me

    As I said above, I've been a teacher for 25 year with stints in Little Elm and Krum. I have taught the whole range -- from Spanish 1 through Spanish 5 AP Literature.  In both districts, I started and grew the AP programs to great success.  My wife, daughter (a Sophmore  at Trinity University in San Antonio) and I are proud "Dentonites" and have been living there since 1993.  I studied and lived in both Mexico and Costa Rica during my younger years, and it was in those places where I REALLY gained my love of Spanish.  I also travel with students there regularly -- check the photo gallery.  I am a fanatic of Spanish music, telenovelas, literature and movies.  I am also an active alumni of Denton Rugby (17 years playing / 9 watching) and part of Denton's Day of the Dead Festival (COFFIN RACES!!!).
