The main reason this page gets 4 stars is because I was surfing for Classroom Managment techniques and happened upon some *great* advice for the FL classroom. We tend to want our students to talk, but how many of us are constantly saying "no hablen ingles!" From the grave, my high school Spanish teacher (and Foreign Language legend!), Marilyn Barrueta, was giving advice. I had read a few of her wonderful postings before actually seeing her name as the author and was moved. Even though I had Barrueta "baggage" that followed me my whole life, it was that baggage that inspired me to begin teaching at age 35. I am now a middle school teacher who wishes I knew even half of what she knew. This web page is a start.
