Welcome to my blog!

I have been dabbling with different ways to communicate online, district teacher website (too limiting in the cuteness factor), then last year I tried a weebly, this year I have decided to try blogging! I love all the ways to share in this domain, it will allow me to touch base with parents and teachers!
As stated in my blog title, I am a kindergarten teacher in a Dual Language program. Last year was our first year to implement this exciting new program, and the results were amazing! Our program is a 50/50 two-way program where half of our classes are native English speakers, and the other half are native Spanish speakers. This allows our students to have a "model" for the alternate language. In the 50/50 model, our students get half of their instruction in English and half in Spanish. They will continue in the program until 5th grade, when they will be...bilingual...biliterate...and bicultural! How exciting is that?
