I am pleased to share a video that honors one of our French teachers, Todd Spaulding, from MGMS. It is particularly special because he was nominated by one of his students for News 19's Teacher of the Week. It is not every day that a world language teacher gets featured on the local news, so I thought you would all enjoy seeing the clip that was aired, and congratulating Todd for representing Lexington One so well during his interview. He talked about student learning targets, as well as the emphasis on what students can do with the language. I especially liked how he talked about how languages can open us to other ways of thinking, being and expressing ourselves. The video shows classroom footage and even features the student who nominated him speaking French. We rarely get recognized for our hard work as teachers, so today join me in celebrating student achievement and hard working teachers!
