This space is for you!

When I became a Spanish teacher in 2002, I had NO CLUE what I was signing up for!  I entered as a career-changing teacher, getting the basics to qualify for teacher certification in Spanish and then taking additional courses in literacy during my first year of teaching.  I know, I know, there are folks who went the more traditional route who may have heaved an exasperated sigh for the state of systems but let me keep going.

I was thrown into the fire, 41 kids in one class, all grade levels, all literacy levels, ALL BEHAVIOR LEVELS and 99% of them looked just like me at that age: young, Black with promise, and precocious. (wink)

Yes, I taught Spanish. I also introduced them to Wolof and West African cultures. Most importantly, I taught them you can be Black and PHENOMENAL in languages!

So this space is for you.

A space to get encouragement from other teachers

A space to get ideas for teaching ideas you may not have considered

A space for me to walk with you as you show your students that look like me, that they BELONG in your classroom.
