My Students

I teach 7th and 8th grade Spanish students who range in ages from 12 to 14 years. My students are generally of high intellectual caliber and enjoy reading most of the time. Many of them go through several books a month.

My students have the potential and drive to make real and significant changes in the world.

They are driven, intelligent, and independent, and they have a sense of social responsibility.

I am extremely impressed with the way they embrace a growth mindset and continue to better themselves. Often my students not only participate in rigorous academic courses but also in demanding extra-curricular activities like music, sports, STEM-related clubs, and more. They want to gain as many skills and experiences that they can to become professionals in the future and positively impact the world.

My Project

Reading is extremely important in building vocabulary and learning the different grammar structures of a different language. I hope that my students can receive a class set (35) of the novel Tumba by Mira Canion for us to use in class. We will read together in Spanish, have discussions, and write about the contents of the book.

The book contains 170 new vocabulary words and Spanish-English cognates to promote growth and comprehension.

This story about a young boy's experience with the Day of the Dead in Mexico also connects students with one of Mexico's most known holidays.

Thank you for helping us explore Spanish literature and enhance our language skills!
