So, life happened. LOTS of BIG life changes for me and for my family over the past three months. Sorry for the MIA status, but rest assured I am back and ready to roll my sleeves up and get to work!
One of the big changes for me was moving back to teach Spanish and Spanish for Spanish Speakers in high school. I must say, I feel like I have landed back at home. I am now teaching at a school that has very scripted lessons, but is working to head more toward using comprehensible input in their curriculum. It is kinda dorky, but I am glad I am here to witness the change.
All this being said, I am working to create at least a few more things for my students that will get them interacting with each other, learning about culture and falling in love with learning languages. It’s a tall order, but I am still optimistic!
I spent the first semester in a bilingual elementary classroom, and I definitely was able to use so many of the CI skills I have learned in the past few years. The thing is, language learners are language learners, but I will get more into that in my next post.
Hope this finds you well! I would love for you to follow the blog and come along my teaching journey with me. I would also LOVE to hear what kind of content would help YOU most in your teaching, so leave a comment!
Until next time….
