Spanish teaching at UNITY Community Center

For the fourth semester, LAN 320.11 students will teach Spanish to K-4th graders at UNITY Community Center in Normal. During the second half of the semester, Alejandra Villalobos and Becca Enderlin spend their Thursday evenings at the center teaching little ones beginning Spanish lessons for 45 minutes each week. They are teaching basic greetings, colors, and cultural lessons, practicing their teaching skills before they enter their student teaching placements in the fall. The first half of the semester, LAN students volunteered at the center on Thursday evenings to get to know their future students. The LAN Spanish teaching program at UNITY began in the spring of 2012.
