My name is Emily Erwin, and I spent the last four years teaching Spanish 1 and 2 to middle-school students in central Virginia. I’ve recently started a new job in professional training and development in the private sector, but I’m not quite ready to walk away from the language learning community yet (you can read more on that here). I basically am incapable of turning my teacher brain off, so I’m excited to use this blog as an outlet to share some of the materials I’ve used in class. I’ve gained so much from reading other teacher’s blogs, and I hope that I can give back to the online community of inspiring Spanish teachers out there. In addition to the ideas shared on this site, I have started to share some lesson plans on Teachers Pay Teachers as well. If you see something you like, something to be improved upon, or a relevant lesson or idea to share, please let me know in the comments, or you can get in touch with me on Twitter @SraErwin or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Gracias!
