I write Señora Speedy to help me reflect and record the lessons that I teach. I find that writing posts here helps me reflect on what I'm doing in class and why. It also helps to remind me to keep doing what works and to drop what isn't. My hope is that my ramblings here will help other world language teachers as well as students and parents of students studying another language in their own classes and studies.
I teach Spanish but when I'm talking about procedures or lesson ideas I will write in English for the benefit of teachers of other languages. Anything I do in my classes can easily be adapted for another language. I taught English for 3 years in Japan before returning to the US and getting my teaching credential in Spanish. You better believe a lot of the activities that I found worked with my Japanese classes have found their way into my American classroom.
I love to collaborate with other teachers. Please comment or contact me if you have any questions or ideas to share!
