Reflecting while looking ahead.

I started this blog around this time last year and unfortunately haven't kept up with it as much as I would have liked. But just like with most things, people get busy and forget about the less important things like blogging, no offense to the people who read this. :) I am pleased to see however that I completed three out of my four goals I had for myself last year. I went on a field trip, made my classroom more "green" (with the help of donorschoose.org) and worked more with my special ed. students. This past year was a success, and I've enjoyed my mostly relaxed summer. I didn't travel for an extended period of time this summer like I did past summers, but instead spent a long weekend in romantic Montreal.

I'm super excited about a new class I am teaching: Advanced Placement Spanish Literature. This specific AP test has apparently the lowest pass rate of all AP tests. I have been working hard preparing to teach it this fall, and am feeling very excited and confident. I also am lucky to have a great class that I'll be teaching so I'm feeling good.

I'm going to try and update this daily. Don't worry when the school year starts there will be all sorts of juicy goodness to write about.

I would like to teach AP Spanish Language but don't know where to start. What are the requirements as far as my own education. I have taught Spanish 2 and 3 at the high school level for 16 years.
