It’s all on SALE!

Somewhere to Share has been SO busy this summer! Here are some things the team has been working on:

Abra Koch joined us to add two units to Huellas 1: El que siembra cosecha and El paraíso es una biblioteca

Melisa Lopez added Can Dos and Essential Questions to every unit of the curriculum and created a curriculum map of both Huellas 1 and 2.

Dylan Brinkmann added podcasts to 3 units and AJ+ video activities to 2!

Allison Toth took over the Somewhere to Share Instagram and deleted all of my “Boomer” posts so that it looks like what it is… a place to share tips, tricks, and resources!

I wrote two units: La ciudad nunca duerme and No basta con hablar de la paz to add to Huellas 1.

If you already own Huellas, be sure to update all your folders on TPT. If you still owned the previous PDF versions, download those again, we also added a link to the drive folder so that you can access all of the student sheets Melisa made last summer!

This school year looks like it could be… difficult… again. If you haven’t tried Huellas yet, consider trying out our units this year! We have both remote and face to face plans in each unit so no matter what 2021-22 brings, we will be ready to tackle it together.

The whole store at Somewhere to Share will be on sale Tuesday ,August 3 and Wednesday, August 4, 2021. Stock up on music, movie talks, or the Huellas curriculum with the code BTS21 for a 25% discount!

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","Bananas", "Sostenible", and "Papálotl" 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!
