This is a bio from Eric Herman. Watch some of the videos. Amazing from only a second year teacher!
Hi Ben –
I am a Spanish teacher, grades 3-8, in Edgartown, MA.
I am in my second year of teaching, but thanks to my obsessive study of the second language acquisition research and of the TCI/TPRS books, blogs, and listservs, I feel like I have the knowledge of a 10th year teacher and beyond!
I am dedicated to being the best teacher I can be and TCI is making that easy. I aspire to be a TCI Leader/Trainer. Last year, I was the only teacher on the island (MV) that used TPRS. I converted one teacher last year and this year I am advocating strongly for TCI in the other elementary schools and at the local high school. I love being a part of the Foreign Language Education Revolution!
Personally, I was a Youth Development Volunteer in the Peace Corps in Honduras. I married a beautiful and intelligent Honduran. I assist HEDAC (hedac.org), an organization that sponsors education in Morazán, HN. I am also a personal trainer at a local YMCA.
