World Language Educators seeking:
✓ community that feels like family
✓ professional growth, on your journey to mastery of facilitating language acquisition
✓ beautiful, pre-made resources for your Spanish and French classes
✓ coaching from a World Language Enthusiast, Master Teacher, and positive and passionate cheerleader who wants nothing more than YOUR success and that of your students!
... in an intimate, judgement-free community of like-minded professionals!
Any of these describe you?:
➔ Department of 1 (or at least it feels that way!)
➔ Stuck in a rut...Feels like you do the same things over and over, and your students feel that way too
➔ Frustrated with trying to build a classroom community when things are constantly changing
➔ Tired of too much ENGLISH in your World Language classroom!
➔ in a FUNK that you can't seem to shake... can't find the JOY in teaching any more and defeated that you can't get that handful of kids to engage, no matter what you try!
➔ Constantly comparing yourself to other teachers, both in your building and those you see at conferences or online
What if I told you it didn’t have to be this way? What if I told you that there were teachers just like you, showing up authentically every day with fresh ideas and new strategies for their students. World Language teachers learning, sharing and growing in a community, that YOU too, can be a part of...

Alicia B- La Familia Loca Member
I feel so supported and less isolated! On the worst days, there's a group out there who understands. And, there are so many ideas shared to make MOST days, the BEST days!
Hi, I’m La Maestra Loca!
I’m a teacher JUST LIKE YOU, which makes my approach to coaching and leading in this community unique! I’m in the classroom full time, and I've been teaching with Acquisition Driven Instruction my whole career.
I am passionate about coaching teachers to show up every day as their authentic selves, for their students, while developing and enhancing their skills in facilitating language acquisition. I believe there is so much power in how we "show up" every day for our kids and I am SO glad you’re here!

Amigos, I think I may cry. This takes such a weight of fmy shoulders to have these resrouces!
I love the way that new ideas that you share help re-motivate me to continue to stretch and grow. I feel connected to other teachers and int hat connection, there is strength.
I love this group. The positivity and support is unreal. Love has always been goal #1 for me as a teacher. This group is full of teachers that share that value. This is not just a Facebook group, this is a powerhouse of amazing teachers who just want their kids to see themselves for all we know they can be.
Your energy inspires me. My students really love the brain breaks and I love all the idea generation because I get in a rut so often!
