Here are the poems and short explanations of two students:



Katherine  Cross:



As a way to practice verb tenses, we were asked to write a poem. By doing this assignment I learned the proper way to use the conditional form, both in Spanish and in English.

Reflections

Creativeness, strength, purpose and meaningfulness exude from the learners sitting in my room, fill the entire space, inspire and motivate me, the mentor, and therefore, dictate my interaction with my scholars.

On the Monday following Thanksgiving break, my Spanish class had the rare opportunity to video chat with students from our sister school in South Africa.  Before talking with them on Skype, we had only communicated through blog entries, exchanging questions about what life is like in our respective countries.  For example: a normal school day.  In my mind, school goes from eight to…
