¡Hola! Welcome to this website and my Spanish curriculum!
Through 18 years of teaching Spanish to kids of all ages, I have created a way for anyone to implement an effective elementary or middle school Spanish program at home or in the classroom easily and affordably.
Spanish for You! is a theme-based curriculum that engages students through a variety of easily taught activities and techniques, AND saves parents, teachers, and schools time and money by using streamlined lessons with inexpensive materials.
Everything comes directly from me to you. I take what I do with my students and format it for others to use. Everything is step-by-step so there is never any question about what you need to do. Since everything comes directly from me to you, the curriculum is super affordable.
The curriculum graphics are even kept simple and inexpensive. They are hand drawn by a kid, and appear in black and white to keep costs down. Kids love the illustrations and often like to color them.
I was inspired to create this curriculum because I had several needs that other Spanish curriculums did not easily or entirely address. They were:
- easy flow into any high school curriculum.
- flexibility to fit a variety of budgetary and scheduling situations
- streamlined lessons to allow teaching multiple grades the same material during the same semester or school year.
- ability to place new and experienced students together at the same grade level
- audio of entire textbook – parents and kids want to hear everything and not guess on pronunciation
Spanish for You! addresses all these needs. I have used the curriculum for 9 years now and am having great results! It is a product of many years of practical and educational experience. You can read what others have to say on my curriculum reviews or testimonials pages.
