My Students

This semester I have the pleasure of teaching Honors Spanish Immersion for Native/Heritage Speakers II. These Latino students are amazing and are working really hard on their reading, comprehension and writing skills in Spanish. They all have plans to be professionals or attend college after high school and they know how important it is to be able to communicate professionally in Spanish and English. These students rage from 9th graders to 12th grade students. Some have lived in the United States their whole lives while others have only been here four months. Their education levels range as well, but they don't let that stop them from working hard to excel in and out of the classroom. I feel very blessed to be able to teach them this semester and learn from them as well.

My Project

My students are focusing on reading, comprehension and writing skills this semester in Honors Spanish Immersion II. This particular class is for Native or Heritage Spanish speakers, so I try to find literature that is relatable and interesting to them. In addition, their education levels vary and this book can be broken down for beginners or materials can be added to make working through it more difficult for our advanced students.

Through this book, students will be able to enhance their current skills and hopefully become more open to the wonderful world of reading.

In addition, they will be able to learn more about Mexican culture and more about each other as some stories in this book are similar to their own.

Overall our main goal is to ensure they can read, comprehend, write and discuss the themes in this book. The skills they will gain will help them in high school and beyond.
