Airports, art museums, public service announcements, books, surveys and too much more to list; with which do I begin my blog? For some unknown reason I have be resistant to the idea of writing about what happens in my Spanish classroom. For me, what we do in class is just everyday effective teaching. It is what I have always done to help my students gain proficiency. Over the years, friends and colleagues have nudged me to blog, telling me that I must talk about the wonderful things my students are accomplishing and how the class is student centered around authentic activities and proficiency. I have never been one to shout: "Look at me!" The whole blog thing seemed odd. After following many blogs, I had a realization that this is not bragging, but therapy. It is self reflection about the awesome, the good, the bad, and perhaps the down right horrible. It is a way to connect with my colleagues worldwide and lean on them for support, trade ideas, and share a hearty laugh that all of us teachers need from time to time. So, check often as I share the wonderful ups and downs of what is working to help my students not only learn Spanish, but learn about life!
HEre we go!

Welcome to my blog! In English it means, "Only one day...." and it shows just a snapshot of what we do in my classroom to encourage proficiency and higher thinking. Enjoy!
