If I Knew Then: A Letter to Me on My First Day Teaching

Dear Me…

Edutopia has teamed up with SoulPancake and did a project for teachers to write a letter to themselves on “My First Day Teaching”. What would you tell yourself on your first day of teaching?

Lead with Languages!

I often tell people, it is not which world language to learn, it is to open your mind to another culture and learn another language. Sure one would argue some language is more “important” than others, but I do not believe that is the case. I firmly believe that we need to provide opportunities for students to learn ANY language. Monolingualism in 21st century with all of the resources we have is just simply not acceptable. ACTFL has team up with an awesome campaign, call “LeadWithLanguages.com”. I am super excited with this even there is not much about it yet. For now, I am going to advocate and continue talk about world language, because I know for a fact that together we can “LEAD WITH LANGUAGES!”
