What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me
Technology has made a tremendous impact on language learning. I hope to provide my students with the tools they need, through our thematic units, to discover their own passion whether it be in World Language or another field.
A Teachable Moment
In my introductory Spanish literature class in college (before I declared my major) I had a professor that asked me if I translated my paper from English to Spanish. I said, "Of course I did. What else would I do?" I knew that most of my classmates did the same thing. To my surprise, she told me that I had to think in Spanish, not translate to Spanish. This really opened my eyes to a whole new way of expressing myself in the target language. Although a difficult concept for high school students to comprehend, I hope to instill this eye opening concept to them.
