What is actually going on in our own districts re: CI instruction? It is not a pretty picture. The four percenters who became teachers because they were four percenters rule. Most districts are filled with beaten down, conflicted foreign language educators.
Had I not moved to TPRS-rich Colorado I would never have even met Susan Gross and my life would have been much different, much emptier. I would have retired thinking that nothing else was possible. I would have been, like so many others, one of those teachers who just plain don’t get what Blaine has tapped into.
