Welcome to Sra. K. Spanish

Vamos de viaje…

Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.

— Oscar Wilde.

I am so excited, and a little nervous, to get this started! I have been on the blogs of so many other teachers over the years, and have found them so useful. So, I thought it was time for me to share a few things too!

I have taught in a dual language classroom, in a bilingual classroom, in middle school and high school Spanish classrooms teaching native English speakers and native and heritage Spanish speakers. I also spent a few years teaching ESOL at the college level.

Most recently, I have been working over at CI Liftoff writing curriculum and coaching teachers in the Stepping Stones curricular framework.

I hope that my experiences may be able to help encourage other educators! So…¡vámanos de viaje!

My Current Situation

So, you have made it this far! Thank you for coming back!

What is my current situation?

  • Middle school Spanish 2
  • Spanish for Heritage Speakers 1
  • Spanish for Native Speakers 2/3

I am currently using CI techniques in my Spanish 2 class. I am LOVING the changes and progress I am seeing in my students every day! INPUT is the key to success!!! I began in a school where textbooks and grammar were used, and I was not supported in the change. I am so grateful to now be in a school where we are given the freedom to embrace techniques which support comprehensible input.

With my native and heritage speakers classes, I am taking more of a Spanish Language Arts approach. I have a VERY wide variety of levels in both English and Spanish in both of these classes, which can be quite a challenge. I am hoping that getting my thoughts down here and hearing from all of you will help build a community where we can be supported by each other!
