Spanish teacher professional development from Mis Clases Locas. Presentations for World Language teachers in person and virtually. Are you interested in collaborating or having Allison present at a conference? Please send an email using the contact form! As a busy mom, time and conference presentations can be limited, (especially if they involve travel) so schedule far in advance if possible!
Past conference presentations have included being a specially invited guest presenter at Texas Foreign Language Association and Comprehensible Iowa, Best of Iowa at CSCTFL, and multiple-time All-Star presentations at IWLA. Additionally, Allison has been an invited guest presenter at ten virtual conferences. Her expertise includes: incorporating movement, teaching with novels, comprehensible input strategies, curriculum design, using music, and classroom routines. See previous topics below for presentation ideas.
