I teach 7th and 8th grade Spanish at a large, diverse public middle school in Maryland.
--Build proficiency through comprehensible input
--Keep anxiety levels low and engagement high
--Use simplified interactive notebooks to keep students organized and teacher sane
A shining teacher moment:
Receiving a surprise group gift of "Billy la Bufanda" from one of my 8th grade classes with a card that read, "We love Billy almost as much as we love you!"
--B.A. in International Relations
--Master of Arts in Teaching (Spanish pre-K-12)
