My Students

I am a Spanish Teacher at a public school in Detroit. I am blessed to teach at one of the most unique schools in the city. Ours is the only school in the area (and probably one of the few in the country) that offers language immersion from kindergarten to eighth grade in French, Chinese, Japanese, and Spanish. Most of my fantastic students have been learning Spanish for five to eight years. They are incredibly smart, motivated, and enthusiastic about the language and culture.

My students love utilizing technology and improving their speaking skills.

I have been blown away by how well they utilize Google Slides, and how engaged they are by online games. As a world language teacher, there are SO many wonderful opportunities to engage students with the world around them through technology.

My Project

Having a laptop cart for my classroom has opened a world of resources for my students. Now, I can teach Spanish in an even more engaging and interactive way, while also teaching technology skills to prepare students for the world beyond school. With microphones and headsets, students will be able to create voice-over presentations, interact with videos, create their own language portfolios, speak with other Spanish speakers, and more! The opportunity for increasing communicative ability and interactive learning will be endless. Additionally, students will be able to hear themselves speak and learn from their errors. This will aid them in improving language proficiency and communicative confidence.
