AATSP VIRTUAL CLASSROOM CONTEST WINNERS!

Thursday, May 21, 2020  

 

We asked teachers to share an image of their virtual classrooms as they continue to teach from home during quarantine. We have received some of the most heartwarming and hilarious images and would like to thank everyone who submitted an entry. As promised, we have selected two teachers who will be receiving a $100 discount off next year’s conference registration for our annual conference in Atlanta, Georgia (July 8-11, 2021).

Congratulations to Lissa Dallas and Pamela Donahoo, you have been selected as our two winners!

 

Winner 1: Lissa Dallas, High School Teacher, Farhill School

“When I make instructional videos each week for my Spanish I-V students, I include my dogs, and we dress up as a recognizable Spanish or Mexican icons with my teaching space, the dining room, decorated accordingly for Spain or Mexico. Pictured here I am "La profesora matadora," with my part pit bull bull and French bulldog assistant, in Spanish decor. Among the characters I have portrayed are: la luchadora, profesora Magnifica (with a real Mexican luchador mask), Zorra, la profesora (with Zorro hat, mask, and cape), and Frida, la profesora de la vida, Kahlo (complete with flowery headdress and unibrow). The students (and parents) can't wait to see who I will be next.”

 

Winner 2: Pamela Donahoo, Middle School Teacher, Oklahoma Christian School

“I am a Middle School Spanish teacher of 5 classes at 4 levels (including 6th grade intro, 7th grade 9 weeks rotation, 8th grade rotation, and 40 students in 8th Grade Spanish 1 for High School credit.) My Classroom was the dining table - with charts, posters, CD player, my puppets, posters, and stuffed toys to act out concepts. My favorite part of online teaching has been creating fun Google MEET lessons with action songs, puppets and posters, and in seeing some students be creative in solving problems and in adding their personal touch to projects. The most difficult part has been to teach this final 9 week rotation made up of many students who had never met me in the classroom, and to keep in touch with students and their parents when they seem to just want to be done! My suggestions would include staying organized (for me, it means color coded folders); writing down everything from ideas, to reminders, to frustrations; and keeping detailed grades and notes concerning every student.”
