My Students

Mis chicos absolutely love learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. I try to incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are fulfilled, meeting them where they are. I am very thankful to have a group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year. While the traditional World Languages curriculum mostly focuses on workbook and grammar activities, instead we play games and use different strategies to make sure the learning is comprehensible and meaningful. We use technology, read aloud, virtual reality, movie talks and comprehensible input in our lessons, but what we are really talking are selections that the students can connect/relate to. It is a true joy when the students leave the classroom asking to stay a bit more.

My Project

These second language leveled novels will enhance the classroom library I am starting for my Spanish 1 and 2 students. At this moment, we do not have access to any Spanish novel. The only readings we have in class come directly from the textbook, not always attractive to the students. The majority are a bit dated and the topics far from interesting.

With novels like "La novia perfecta" or "Agentes Secretos" my students will be able to choose reading materials that will allow them to read independently at their own Spanish proficiency level about topics that interest them as well as increase their contact with foreign cultures.
