Miss Senorita

I think it's really important to get students talking. We do lots of choral repetition, especially with new or relatively new vocabulary. I love helping kids remember words and how to say them by relating them to things that sound naughty in English ;) I make sure to do listening, speaking, reading, and writing every day if possible. I also like to play games when they help reenforce vocabulary or grammar! I have taught middle and high school Spanish 1, 2, and 3.
