The future of Mis Clases Locas - Your input = free resources & books



4 years

404 posts

It has been 4 years since the first post was published on Mis Clases Locas. 

May 21, 2014. 4 years ago I was at the end of my second year of teaching. I was a new first time mom who had just come back from maternity leave. I was starting to push away from the textbook and dipping my toes into comprehensible input methods. 

In my first ever post I wrote, "I was very hesitant to start my own blog, as I did not feel I had anything nearly as wonderful to contribute. I realized how much I have learned from my mistakes, and hope that someone else can learn from them as well. I can hope I can give back a tiny bit to the community that has helped me so much."

I started this blog as a way to give back to the #langchat community on Twitter. I wanted to help isolated new teachers like myself. I wanted to show that it is ok to try new things, fall flat on your face, and then get up and try again. I did not realize that it would document my journey from a traditional textbook teacher, to a teacher using comprehensible input methods. I posted about my first time trying out using a novel, El Internado, story asking and more. It is actually pretty cool to look back and see how far I have come. It is like my public teaching diary, with friends reading and giving me advice along the way. 

Over the years Mis Clases Locas has grown to add a Facebook page, Instagram, TPT, collaborate on Secondary Spanish Space, and I have had a chance to present at conferences like IWLA, CSCTFL and Comprehensible Iowa. Through all of these platforms I have had the opportunity to connect with teachers from all over the world. You all have become my online and real life friends and I am so thankful for your support. 

Anniversaries always make me reflect on the past, but also look to the future. That is where I need your help. I want to know, where do you see Mis Clases Locas in the next year, or in the next three years? What is it you need to meet your goals as a teacher? 

Do you want...
... more resources for your classroom?
... realtime video on Instagram stories or Facebook Live?
... to attend a workshop with me in person, or even maybe virtually?
... more blog posts on a specific topic?

Your feedback will help me plan what I do with Mis Clases Locas over the summer. My two boys (who are 4 & 1.5) will be my main focus, as we do not have any summer daycare. I have big plans for camp Mama and am pumped to get to be with them full time during my favorite time of the year. This means that if I happen to get them to nap together (and if I can keep my 4 year old napping), I maybe have one hour per day for Mis Clases Locas. I want to be specific and to be able to strategize how I use that time. That is why I want you to tell me what you want!

To help give you an incentive to fill out this form, I am going to offer up a variety of prizes which will be randomly drawn from those who fill it out. Those prizes will be:
  1.  bundle of your choice from Mis Clases Locas
  2.  $10 Gift card to TPT
  3.  FVR book assortment in Spanish
  4.  resource of your choice from Mis Clases Locas
If you share this blog post on social media and tag me, you will have an extra entry! The giveaway will close on Monday, May 28th at midnight, but you are free to keep giving as much feedback as you would like after that. 

This giveaway is now closed!

Thank you so much for joining me on this journey. If you have been with me from the start, I appreciate you supporting me as I jumped into CI, switched schools, had another baby, threw out my desks, focused more on TPT, and learned something new every day. If you are just joining in, feel free to to dig through old posts for some laughs and hidden gems, as well as follow along on Facebook InstagramTPT & Pinterest for more regular teaching resources. 

Thank you again & do not forget to tell me tell me what you want, what you really really want :)
