HOLA my dear friends!
Wanted to write a quick note to let you know of TWO awesome PD opportunities this week featuring yours truly! 😉
Tomorrow, Inspired Proficiency’s 4th, (YES, FOURTH!) podcast will be available for FREE on iTunes! If you haven’t tuned in yet, you should absolutely give it a listen. Ashley is doing an AMAZING job and she is coordinating awesome speakers who bring the podcast to life. Episode 4 will feature me, talking about Brain Breaks, and there will also be a “Games Panel” featuring Courtney Miller and Amelia Eastin! WAHOOO!
Then on WEDNESDAY, I’ll be doing a Webinar with NNELL!! If you’re already a member it is FREE! It will begin at 6PM CST and of course be recorded and archived on their website. Here is a description of my webinar:
Elementary teachers have the BEST job in the world. Every single day we have the opportunity to create a space in our foreign language classrooms that is truly magical for our students. If you aren’t already trained in “magic” you will be amazed at what a little webinar to hone your skills will do for classroom management with little ones. In this session, come and learn exactly WHAT you can do to make your classroom a little more “magical”. Learn tips and tricks to incorporate a little more wonder into your instruction in order to maximize student acquisition and engagement.
Immediately following the webinar, we have a #EarlyLang chat scheduled (7pm CST) on Twitter and I will be co-moderating with the one and only Sara-Elizabeth Cottrell of Musicuentos!!! YES!!! If you’re not a member and you want to join NNELL it is $30 for a year, I believe, and they’ve extended it include next academic year, so you’d be paid through August of 2019! YAY! Here is a link.
I hope you’re having a happy March! We went to the Irish Italian parade this weekend and caught enough cabbages and potatoes to feed us for the next week!
Sending y’all my LOVE!
