Teaching grade 4 at FFCA, I’m lucky enough to also teach beginner Spanish to the grade 4 students. In July, 2013, I was granted the Language Bursary Award from the Government of Alberta to study Spanish abroad. Through this bursary program, I was able to pick any Spanish-speaking country, and participate in daily language lessons, as a way to improve my own skills, as well as enhance the learning of my students.
From Spain, I also did a few traveling side trips to Morocco and Gibraltar.
Being that my boyfriend, Daniel, is from Ireland, we took it as an opportunity to also visit his family while in Europe. If you’re interested in reading more about both experiences, please read:
