Ms. Sunkin encourages her students to take advantage of every opportunity to use the language they are learning and to broaden their horizons through their interpersonal interactions and exposure to other cultures.  She strives to provide an environment in which students feel comfortable learning.  She supports her students and the pursuit of their endeavors.
