I have been a classroom teacher for the past two years in an experimental school. Before that I was a long-time tutor of Spanish, Italian and Russian at the university level.
I try to use games and activities as much as possible over lectures. I try hard not to bore the kids and to have them always moving or working hard in the target language.

Hi y'all. I'm from the South, but live in the great white north now. I realized that there wasn't a lot of resources at my school (especially not for foreign language), so I made this page. If it took me less than an hour to make, I put it up for free. If it took me more than an hour, it $1, purely because someone has to pay for paper for my class (we get barely an excusable allotment). All money paid for products goes directly back into my classroom. Hopefully y'all will get some use out of them. Thanks!
