What do I Need for Remote Learning?

Teaching Level 1 or 2? You need Somos. No kidding. Martina Bex at the Comprehensible Classroom has done so much work getting her curriculum adapted for ANY AND EVERY Remote situation that you will not have a worry in the world! Plug and play! Try Martina’s curriculum match maker to meet your needs!

Teaching Level 3 or 4? You need Huellas 1 and you can even purchase Huellas 2 as a pre-release bundle (It will be getting some updates as we add remote plans to all of the units in the bundle!)

No matter if you’re teaching level 2, 3, 4, or AP, I also recommend the “All the Cultural Readings Bundle”. This bundle contains readings with follow up questions that can be used with units you already do, as sub plans, or as Free Choice Readings!

Jade Collins at La Secundaria is a pro with the level 1 students and she has some amazing cognate bundles and even BOOM CARD bundles!

I began teaching Spanish in Illinois in 1994. I have taught levels 1-4 in a small rural high school, 8th grade introductory Spanish, Biology 1, and 101 and 102 at the community college level. My Spanish classes are partnered with the community college to offer students 8 semester hours of dual credit on completion of Spanish 4. In 2011 I met Carol Gaab and Kristy Placido and have since co-authored the book "La hija del sastre" with Carol Gaab and authored the novels "La Calaca Alegre", "Bianca Nieves y los 7 toritos." "Vector," "48 horas" and "Bananas" through Fluency Matters. In 2006 I became National Board certified and I have been serving as a mentor both for candidates seeking certification in world languages other than English and a virtual mentor for candidates in all certificate areas. I completed my Masters degree in Spanish education in 2011 and did my research on the use of Understanding by Design to create meaningful cultural units for the language classroom. I am a frequent presenter on this topic, please consider me if you are interested in a workshop on backward design. In 2013 I was named the ICTFL Foreign Language teacher of the year and in 2014 I was selected as CSCTFL's teacher of the year. In November of 2014 I was lucky enough to be one of the five finalists for the ACTFL National Teacher of the Year in San Antonio, TX. What a "Cinderella" experience!
