Hello, does anyone teaches in a Spanish Immersion program ? It will be great to collaborate with another immersion teacher.


Taught third last and fifth grade this year and I had a really hard year for various reasons. I’m trying to decide if I actually liked the fifth grade, or if I should try again in third? Advice?
