R Hale – Teacher of French and Spanish

During my placement, I was given the opportunity to share a Spanish KS4 group with my mentor.  I felt quite apprehensive about this as I was more confident with French but was determined to give it my all as it was a good opportunity to challenge myself and develop my subject knowledge.  When I began teaching the group I realised that they lacked confidence in their abilities but thrived on a challenge and wanted to succeed.  During the second term, I taught them the past tense in Spanish and was amazed how quickly they picked it up.  They then completed a formative assessment and the results were amazing.  I was so impressed by how the group had progressed.  It was so rewarding to see the progress and how their efforts had paid off.
