I have taught High School Spanish 1 for the past 5 years to 8th grade students. I have taught Intro to Spanish (pre level 1) to 8th grade students for 2 years.
I love to get students up moving and competing. I love using games in the Spanish classroom. My students are so competitive and motivated by games and partner activities. I love using music in the classroom as well. My goal this year is to incorporate more Comprehensible Input and TPRS strategies into my teaching.

I grew up in Glenview, IL and attended Glenbrook South High School. I graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Secondary Education in 2013. While at the University of Iowa I had the amazing opportunities to study abroad in Heredia, Costa Rica and Sevilla, Spain.
My name is Amy T. I currently live in Marion, IA with my dog, Finn. I teach Spanish 1 and Intro to Spanish to 8th grade middle school students and love working with them!
