Hooray! My first post!!!

Hi, welcome to my new blog. My name is Mynda and I'm from Puerto Rico. I have been a bilingual teacher in Texas for the last 8 years. But this is my first year blogging. Yes, I'm a rookie. But I think you're going to enjoy my blog a lot.
Over the years, I noticed there are not that many bilingual blogs. Everything you find it's in English. But what about Spanish? "Nada". Hopefully, you will find many helpful ideas that you can apply in your classroom.
Please let me know if you're looking for specific activities in Spanish for your bilingual classroom. And I'll try to deliver.
Now you got to be patient with me. I'm still trying to learn everything about blogging. A couple of months ago, I was just a Facebook expert. But this is all brand new for me so be patient. :-)

Here is my first activity: "Back to School; Get to Know your Friends in English and Spanish". Let me know what you think. Thanks, Mynda.
