Adriana Ramirez

Some may have missed this post about a month ago.
Also, Angie asked me to add this video to our video collection on the hard link above. As I rewatched it, I had the sound off and was struck at the grace of movement and soft artistry/use of arms and hands to support ideas and include people in Adriana’s teaching style. This video reminds me that we can’t be nervous, or at least visibly so, when we do TPRS. Our students need slow flow. The easy flow we see here from Adriana is really something to emulate:

  1. Unfortunately I don’t speak a word of Spanish! Wish I could so I can appreciate how each of her points is heing achieved. Boo Hoo.

In June of last year, I was told in no uncertain terms by my principal that I could no longer teach with TPRS; that our students were not used to it because no one else in the district did it; that they were purchasing a new textbook series and I would be expected to follow it.

I’ve done my best to work with the first unit in the book but now that our 1st quarter is nearing its end and I have visited Adriana’s YouTube site, seen the videos, and purchased her teacher’s guide, I’m thinking I’ll just close my door and “use the book” my way.

  3. By the way, is there a way for me to change my last name on this site? It’d be less confusing if I used my maiden name anyway since it starts with an O.
