Spanish with Mrs. Laura Abuhl (grades 6-12)

¡Hola! My name is Laura Abuhl and I teach Spanish for grades 6-12 at WTCS. Overall, I have taught at WTCS for about 10 years, but not consecutively. Our family moved to Williston from Pennsylvania in 1998, making this the longest time I have lived in one city. Other states in which I have lived include Oklahoma, North Carolina, Michigan, Ohio, and Kentucky. I also went to high school in London, England.

I received both my B.A. and M.A in Spanish from Michigan State University. Go Green! Because I have my Master’s degree, I am able to offer my classes for dual credit. Essentially, this means my students have the option to receive both high school and college credit for being in my class! I am also on the Executive Board of FLAND (Foreign Language Association of North Dakota) and have presented sessions at numerous conferences. 

There are some very exciting things happening in the nation, in our state, and in our school for World Language. First, nationally, teachers are waking up to the best practices for World Language teaching; practices which are backed by years of research. I am dedicated to learning about the best and most innovative ways to deliver instruction and I use an approach called Comprehensible Input. Second, just this year, North Dakota became the 36th state to adopt the Seal of Biliteracy, which will give students who are motivated to work hard an opportunity to apply for this prestigious award. The Seal, when granted, goes on a student’s transcript and their diploma. Additionally, students who take four years of high school Spanish and receive an A for each year will receive a special honor cord to wear at their commencement ceremony. Finally, I could not be more proud of our administration that is committed to World Language. This year, we will be offering Spanish to our littlest scholars, our Pre-K kiddos. Thus, WTCS will have Spanish from Pre-K up to 12th grade. Additionally, pending student interest, we hope to offer a class for Heritage Learners, those students for whom Spanish is their first language. This class will focus on language arts, only in Spanish.  Our Heritage Learners are also fabulous candidates for the Seal of Biliteracy.

I could not imagine teaching anywhere else in Williston, but WTCS. I love the staff, the environment, the students, and especially the ability to talk openly about my faith in Jesus. WTCS is not a perfect school, but it is perfect for ME. Perhaps it will be perfect for YOU too.

Spanish at WTCS

WTCS Middle & High School Spanish students recently participated in Wooly Week!

Señor Wooly is an interactive website, using catchy songs to engage learners of Spanish. This was the 3rd annual Wooly Week.

Spanish teacher, Mrs. Abuhl, wanted the whole school to get involved, so all elementary kids were invited to participate in a Wooly Week Art Contest. Look at these amazing works of art!!   Way to go CRU!

 

Spanish is offered to every student at WTCS.  Mrs. Laura Abuhl is the head Spanish teacher.  Mrs. Lorena Haugen is our Spanish support staff.

Mrs. Laura Abuhl teaches 6-12th grades.  She uses innovative strategies to deliver Comprehensible Input which is necessary for language acquisition. Trinity students often remark how FUN she makes learning. 

Spanish I, II, III & IV are offered upper grades.

FIRST LEGO League @ WTCS

WTCS’ FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Team, the Trinity Technicians, will be participating in the Minot Regional Qualifier at Minot State University on Saturday, January 12th.

“With adult Coaches to guide them, FIRST® LEGO® League teams (up to 10 members in grades 4-8) apply science, engineering, and math concepts, plus a big dose of imagination, to develop solutions to real-world challenges. They also design, build, and program LEGO MINDSTORMS®-based robots to perform autonomous ‘missions’ on a playing field. Along the way, they develop critical thinking, team-building, and presentation skills.”
firstinspires.org

In the morning, teams are judged in three areas: project presentation, core values, & robot design. In the afternoon, 13 robotics teams compete against each other in space-themed missions. The top three teams from the day move on to the North Dakota FLL State Championship Tournament in Grand Forks in February.

The Trinity Technicians would like to thank team sponsors: AE2S & the North Dakota Society of Professional Engineers-Chapter 5. We appreciate your support as the team grows!

Watch for more pics from the big event on Saturday!
