Dusting off this Blog

It has been a number of years since I have posted, and I've made some career changes.  I am now teaching Spanish language arts in a middle school dual immersion program.

One of my goals is to become more active in the dual immersion community, sharing resources and connecting with other teachers.  In order to try to achieve that goal, I'll start off by dusting off this blog and get it up and running again.  So, here we go!

Resistencia the Film

Resistencia is a documentary sharing the story of Hondurans today, the atrocities and injustices they have been facing since the coup of July 2009. Houses, schools, and churches have been burned and destroyed. Hundreds of campesinos (farmers) and community organizers have been assassinated, as corporation and political elites take control over the land in Aguan Valley. Watch the trailer below to learn about how the people are fighting back!
