National Board Teaching Certificate for Foreign Language!
I need support to obtain this certificate for my students.
My classes are special because we use music and art to understand foreign language.
My goal is for students to begin using the language verbally and in written form as soon as they begin to learn it, in Kindergarten.
The students receive comprehensible input as well as cultural lessons that cover all Spanish speaking countries.
We learn about other countries' cultures, use of the language, and important historical contributions. Spanish is always interactive and within my class we learn history, science, and math.
If I were to obtain the certificate, I will bring my students higher quality education in the foreign language classroom. The process requires extensive writing and reflecting on my teaching.
Obtaining the certificate demonstrates that a teacher provides high quality education to his or her students and that they are able and willing to go the extra mile to make sure all of the students learn.
I apply educational research during my lesson planning and execution...
Research shows foreign language learning promotes overall critical thinking skills, and students who are exposed to a higher level of learning are more likely to be bilingual adults.
