I have been so blessed to find a community of Spanish educators who love to support and uplift each other as we each work to create materials for our Spanish classrooms (and yours)! Each of these ladies and gentlemen works tirelessly in their classrooms to create and then share their materials on Teachers Pay Teachers. Below you can read a little bit about each one and follow them on their social media platforms.
