¿Ha oído hablar de la nueva maestra en el pasillo sexto grado?
(Have you heard about the new teacher down in the sixth grade hallway?)
Senora Gahl is the new Spanish culture teacher at Clay.
She has been teaching Spanish for around 10 years. Senora has taught in many places. “I have been in Hawaii, Illinois, and at Noblesville High School,” Gahl said.
When I first walked in, I was excited,” Senora exclaimed, “and when I walked out I was super excited.”
A highlight of Clay for Gahl is “Everyday!” She just loves teaching kids.
“I have noticed that the kids at Clay are very respectful and extremely motivated,” she said.
Senora is trying to teach them to appreciate diversity through fun ways such as games technology, and interaction. Maddie Stacy, seventh grade, who took Spanish language last year, is currently in Spanish Culture. “It is very different,” she said. “We learned a lot of words and vocabulary. Now, we are learning all about how the Spanish people lived.”
Haley Miller, seventh grade, said, “My favorite part so far has to be the Picasso cubism.” “I would definitely recommend this class,” Miller said. “We have learned that not every
place is the same,” Stacy added.
They both said they love when Senora talks in Spanish to the class. “It's fascinating how fluent she is and how much she knows,” Stacy exclaimed.
