I am teaching year 5 as school approaches this August. I am a Spanish Teacher, and I think I’ve known I wanted to teach since I was a kid in school. I fell in love with Spanish in High School and decided to major in it. As luck would have it, I returned to my alma mater High School to teach. As I began, I was teaching in the same way that I was taught, yet I wasn’t seeing the results I had desired. Then I came around to this style of teaching called, TPRS and CI. This method focuses on meaning, not on verb conjugations and boring drills. After I made the switch I saw a TREMENDOUS leap in my students and their ability to ACTUALLY SPEAK SPANISH! How many times do people say, “I took Spanish in school and I don’t remember a lick of it!” Well, I’m on a mission to change that! When I reach the end of my days as a Spanish Teacher, I want my students to say, “I took Spanish with Mr. Brown and I can still communicate!” With the help of your donations, I can make this dream a reality!

What will the funds be used for
This funding will help provide more reading material to them in Spanish. It is often difficult to find readers that are on level with my students’ abilities, and when I do they are often expensive. Donating will mean helping a child learn another language at a pace that they can achieve!
