We are 10 middle and high school Spanish teachers from all over the United States, who met through our work on Teachers Pay Teachers. We share a love of Spanish language and culture and are passionate about impacting students, sharing ideas with teachers, and creating engaging resources. Thank you for visiting our site. We would love to hear your ideas, so hit us up in the comments or on social media!
I am a wife, mama of two little boys, Spanish teacher and blog at Mis Clases Locas. I teach Spanish to grades 7-12 as a department of one in small town Iowa. In the classroom, I utilize comprehensible input through novel and story units. I also have a passion for making connections and having fun with students while staying in Spanish. I love collaborating with teachers around the world that help me learn and grow every day as a Spanish teacher.
I learned Spanish growing up in Phoenix, Arizona, studying in high school and college, and by traveling all over the Spanish speaking world. I have a decade’s experience in urban public schools as a teacher and researcher. I have taught all levels of high school Spanish and take a pragmatic approach to my teaching. I emphasize practical application of Spanish language and culture in real world contexts. I teach with hands on, project based learning, and believe that direct instruction, repetition, and traditional assessments are important for learning, too.
I am a Spanish teacher, mom of two, wife of a teacher and coach, and a high school teacher. I love creating engaging materials to help students understand Spanish vocabulary and grammar better. Rick Riordan said, “My goal in the classroom was always to make sure they were having so much fun that they didn’t realize they were learning.” That is my teaching philosophy and goal, too! My resources reflect that ideology.
I blog at Spanish Mama, where I write about teaching Spanish and raising bilingual kids. I have taught everything from preschool to high school over the past 10 years, and currently teach Middle and High School Spanish. I met my husband while teaching in Peru and we now live in the U.S. with our two children. I love to teach language through games, music, stories, and culture: creating a “living classroom experience” for Spanish learning. My classrooms are newly textbook-free and I enjoy learning all I can about creating a proficiency based, comprehensible input-driven classroom.
I’ve been teaching Spanish (along with a variety of other subjects) for 14 years! i’m a Georgia native, married to an awesome Peruvian husband, now living in the Caribbean. We have an amazing 8 year old daughter. We love to travel and never get tired of the beach! I have a passion for creating hands-on, interactive resources to make Spanish learning fun!
I am a wife, mama to a spunky little girl, and wrangler and motivator of middle school Spanish students. I’m passionate about proficiency-based teaching methods and integration of educational technology. I also really love curriculum development and collaborating with fellow language teachers. When I”m not working, I most enjoy spending time with friends and family, exploring my home state of Michigan, and watching Netflix with my husband after we put our daughter to bed.
I taught High School French and Spanish for many years and work on TpT full-time from home while raising my own two kids bilingually. My passion is creating engaging resources to spice up the classroom so that both teachers and students love coming to language class. When I’m not at work with my snuggly cats by my side, you can find me out adventuring: hiking, biking, kayaking, and snowshoeing.
I have been teaching the Spanish language for the last 22 years, but my love of the language goes back many years before I ever started to teach. I first started to fall in love with the language in middle school, trying to communicate with non-English speaking students that had arrived at our school. Fortunately, I was able to formally begin study of the language during my high school years. I decided to continue with the language in college, because I wanted to have a career that I loved! This career began at the high school level where I taught for 16 years before being given the opportunity to teach at the college level. I currently remain teaching at this level, and I continue to love the language!
