I am a eighth grade, first year Spanish teacher at a low-income school in Brooklyn, NY. I entered my job with all the nervousness and excitement of any new teacher only to come to find I was put in an Art room with no chalkboards! I cannot send kids to the board and write the new phrase we have been working on. Nor can I play games like "Hangman" to practice our new vocabulary. I cannot even write the notes for the day's lesson. It is difficult enough to teach a language without the added stress of not having the basic materials needed to do so. That is why I am requesting a reversible chalkboard so that my students can have the same academic experience in my subject as they have in every other subject. Having this chalkboard will allow me to extend and diversify the ways in which the Spanish language is taught, practiced and used within my classroom.
