Profe. Licklider (she/her)
¡Hola alumnos y familia! I am Profesora Licklider, the middle school Spanish teacher at McKinley Classical Leadership Academy. I teach Spanish ONE, Spanish TWO, and this year will have one class of Spanish THREE. My approach to foreign language class focuses on acquiring the language. When acquiring another language first we LISTEN, then we READ what we have heard, then we WRITE what we have heard and read, and last we SPEAK because we have heard, read, and written it. Please take a look at the resources below to learn more about language acquisition and its benefits, and feel free to email me with any questions you have.
