Profe. Licklider (she/her)

¡Hola alumnos y familias! I am Profe. Licklider, the middle school Spanish teacher at McKinley Classical Leadership Academy. I'm starting my 5th year here at McKinley and will teach 6th and 7th grade Spanish. 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. (benefits of acquiring a second language) (Watch from 3:35-5:20. See what you can acquire about acquisition) (More on language English. Watch the video to get a feel for what "Spanish Zone" is like in our class.)
