  1. Where are you located and where do you teach? I’ve browsed around your blog and it is fantastic. Going to be a huge help for our new Chinese Middle School teachers this year. We would love to invite you to come to our school. We are one of the few school districts in PA, Southern Lehigh in Center Valley, PA that offers a Spanish Immersion program.
    I couldn’t find your email address, so I tweeted you asking about a parent letter outlining expectations for kicking off the school year in a 90%L2 environment. Any chance you would be willing to share it? I’m thinking it’s going to resemble a Behavior Contract signed by parents and children to minimize the tears the first week and parent phone calls to the principal!
