I love helping to save busy teachers time! I am a wife, mama of two little boys, Spanish teacher and blog at Mis Clases Locas. I teach all levels of Spanish as a department of one in small town Iowa. In the classroom, I utilize comprehensible input through novel and story units. I also have a passion for making connections and having fun with students while staying in Spanish. I love collaborating with teachers around the world that help me learn and grow every day as a Spanish teacher.
I had the pleasure of teaching high school Spanish at a large public school for over six years. Along the way, I found that I love developing curriculum and supporting teachers in its implementation. My Spanish resources emphasize the practical application of Spanish language and culture in real-world contexts. I value hands-on, project-based learning, and believe that direct instruction, repetition, and assessments are important for learning, too. I have a B.A. in Spanish Literature from the University of Arizona and an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from Arizona State University.
I am a Spanish and ESL teacher of 12+ years, mom of two, wife of a teacher and coach, and a high school teacher through and through. I love creating engaging materials to help students understand Spanish vocabulary and grammar better. Rick Riordan said, “My goal in the classroom was always to make sure they were having so much fun that they didn’t realize they were learning.” That is my teaching philosophy and goal, too! My resources and classes reflect that ideology. I have a B.A. in Spanish from Willamette University and an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from Portland State University.
I blog at Spanish Mama, where I write about teaching Spanish and raising bilingual kids. I have taught everything from preschool to high school over the past 10 years, and currently teach Middle and High School Spanish. I met my husband while teaching in Peru and we now live in the U.S. with our two children. I love to teach language through games, music, stories, and culture: creating a “living classroom experience” for Spanish learning. My classrooms are newly textbook-free and I enjoy learning all I can about creating a proficiency based, comprehensible input-driven classroom.
I am a wife, mama to a spunky little girl, and wrangler and motivator of middle school Spanish students. I’m passionate about proficiency-based teaching methods and integration of educational technology. I also really love curriculum development and collaborating with fellow language teachers. When I”m not working, I most enjoy spending time with friends and family, exploring my home state of Michigan, and watching Netflix with my husband after we put our daughter to bed.
I taught middle and high school Spanish for 7 years, and now I run a tutoring center. I currently live and work in New York City, but I grew up in New Jersey and Maryland. I have a B.A. in Spanish, Russian, and Secondary Education from the University of Maryland and an M.A. in Urban Education from the City University of New York.
I taught High School French and Spanish for many years and work on TpT full-time from home while raising my own two kids bilingually. My passion is creating engaging resources to spice up the classroom so that both teachers and students love coming to language class. When I’m not at work with my snuggly cats by my side, you can find me out adventuring: hiking, biking, kayaking, and snowshoeing.
