My Students

I serve an incredible, diverse group of teens and tweens from Santa Monica and the surrounding Los Angeles area. We are an urban beach town, and we serve a diverse student body. The primary mission of our school and district is to achieve excellence through equity.

I teach Spanish at the middle school level, and my goal is for all of my students to grow in language proficiency, literacy, and autonomy.

This year I have been moving my classes toward a personalized, self-paced model of blended learning in order to increase my students’ interest and engagement with their own growth in language proficiency.

My Project

PearDeck is an amazing resource that allows me to create an interactive lesson through GoogleSlides and allows students to directly respond and react to questions. I recently brought PearDeck to my lessons through their premium trial period, and my students loved it!

With PearDeck, each student in my mini-lesson connects to my presentation on their own Chromebooks and engages directly with the lesson content by answering interactive questions, typing in their individual responses, and learning from each other.

I see their answers on my teacher iPad, and can show their answers anonymously on the whiteboard, providing them with immediate, personalized feedback. PearDeck is a powerful tool for creating meaningful, personalized lessons in our Blended Learning classroom.
