As I begin my first Spanish educating experience, excitement grows deep within me to meet my students. Ranging from ages 13-17, I am fortunate enough to interact with and engage a variety of brilliant minds and personalities within our four walls!
I have high hopes and big fears, simultaneously, for what lies ahead in the coming months.
All with certainty that my current call is to invest my heart and time here. My students and I thank you in advance!
As I grow an eagerness to learn the names and dreams of each of my students this semester, I also understand the uniqueness of their needs and demands as young learners. Each young human prefers different learning techniques and tactics. With this being said, I am jump starting my classroom with a Spanish library that offers yet another helpful form Spanish engagement!
If it had not been for Spanish television shows, books, and native speakers, I would not be where I am in my comprehension of the language.
All of these things are focuses of the semester in my classroom. I will be including reading materials, hands on activities/projects, music, guest speakers, all in an attempt to motivate individuals to enjoy the language in their own respective manner.
Your support means the world to me, as my mission is not a small one! These 7th-11th graders will greatly appreciate the materials being offered and will surely flourish due to the backing of people who, like myself, believe in the beauty of bilingualism.
