Three qualities I hope to embody as a Spanish or ESL Teacher:
1. I desire for my students to understand that learning a language is more than just memorizing vocabulary lists and grammar rules; I want them to know that is another means to express themselves.
2. As a teacher, I hope to always convey enthusiasm for teaching and learning, despite the many obstacles.
3. I also want to convey a sense of mutual respect by being more of a facilitator in the classroom and giving them chances to explore their own interests.


Opportunities and Challenges of Technology Use In the Classroom:

I think that technology is a very effective tool in gaining access and gathering a wide array of information quickly. One challenge is that, although there is an increasing availability of technology, there are still many students with little or no access, so one would have to discover how to teach them the important skills of using technology even though they might not have regular access to it.


What I hope to learn:

I hope to learn how to use technology so that students actually learn a new language,whether it's Spanish or English, through its use, not just by passively presenting information on a PowerPoint since this is the primary way that I usually see technology being used at the secondary level.
