So far the 2017-18 school year is off to a fantastically fun start! Staying in the target language, using cognates, positive reinforcement, and regular comprehension checks works! They are acquiring and feeling empowered!!!
Stay tuned here to read some quotes from students that just make my day and let me know that what I am doing works.
“Why isn’t everyone in the school required to take Spanish classes? It’s just awesome”
“I don’t ever want to leave this class. I have to go home after this and my house is just boring!”
“Wait, you aren’t perfect? I have never known that to be true.”
“She is unlike any other teacher I have ever had. It’s just fun and she only speaks Spanish.”
I feel blessed to be in a school where my students are invested and enjoying my classes! The best news is that you can too!!!!
