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!
