Connections and Communication
Kathleen O'Connor

This week was our first week of classes at Conserve. Some of the important work that needs to happen during the first week or so of Spanish classes is to create a warm and collaborative environment in my classrooms where all students have a chance to connect to others, to express themselves, to challenge themselves, and to feel heard. Another very important thing that I need to do is to get to know my students and to assess the level of skill with which they are entering the class.
