Teacher Blog– Her Journey in a Dual Language Classroom

Through SpanglishBaby once again, we get a great link to a teacher blog. LearningIn2 is a blog by a teacher who teaches in a dual language classroom. She shares information on reading in two languages and what she does in her Dual Language classroom. Would be fun to have her build a network of other teachers in Dual Language classrooms so that they can capitalize on:

Exchange in materials
Websites of interest
