Report from the Field – Jen Schongalla – 1

Jen shares:

This Facebook message showed up last night when I got home. Out of the blue!

I just wanted to let you know that I took a test to be placed into a Spanish college class. I tested out of the curriculum which means I am the only freshman in a high senior class for Spanish! This is fantastic because today we had a surprise oral exam and I got a 95! My Profe said that my pronunciation is very good and that my Spanish is the best she has seen in a while! This made me thrilled because as a freshman in a mixed class it can very intimidating but today I am just happy! Thank you for all your help and knowledge of the language!

I can now breathe even easier. This is a great response to the folks who wonder “But how are you preparing them for college?”

  1. How rewarding, Jen. My guess is that you were not preparing your student for college, and the student was prepared anyhow. We rejoice with you. See you at TCI Maine.
