Growing Tadpole Teacher
I am so glad that I came across your podcast on Pinterest while browsing. I just graduated with my Bachelors in Spanish and English language education. While I had a practicum course, it was at the college and high school level and didn’t give me as much experience as I needed to teach at the elementary level that I am currently teaching. I have this pool of information that I learned in school but I am struggling to swim. I enjoy your podcast because it has given me water wings to better tread in the water. I feel that I have already left the fantasy teacher phase and now looking a way out of the survival mode that I was standing in at the end of last semester. I want to be an effective and efficient teacher with the subject that I am so passionate about. Thank you for helping me towards achieving that!
Such a great resource!
I have been meaning to listen for a while & I am so glad I finally pressed play on my drive to work. I am looking forward to following along and listening to more about both the theory and practical application as a Spanish teacher. Gracias Becky!
Though I am not an ESL/ELL teacher, I work with many students who are bilingual. This podcast helps to give me insight into some of their struggles as students and offers inspiration to use creative methods in reaching out to them. I highly recommend this podcast to teachers and school support staff of all levels!
