Can language teachers be teaching, training, and creating quality resources too?  With all the other responsibilities life brings?

Yes.

But maybe not and get paid for it.

I'm passionate about teaching language and my heart is happier when I have real students learning real Spanish.  But I also have a gift and passion for helping language teachers improve their practice with strategies and tools that save them time and make them more effective.  But the reality is I can only choose one of them to be my primary income.

The truth is I make less than $2,000 per year in a teaching capacity.  My primary income comes from the other part of me: creating, imagining, and sharing strategies and resources that inspire passion and proficiency in world language teaching.

The truth is that teachers and districts need to spend far less money on professional development opportunities for teachers because of quality material language educators and consultants freely or inexpensively share on the internet.

And the truth is that small, regular support amounts can make a big difference in saying "thank you" and helping these consultants know how and where to provide creative solutions for big questions.

Thank you for making me and Musicuentos a part of your journey.  And thank you for the ways you support and further this amazing profession.

Goals
$12 of $750 per month
My goal for myself comes from a resolution for myself: Support the online teaching community in tangible ways.

I know that there are people who have inspired me so much and saved me so much time with their online creativity and generosity that I've wanted to give back.  I know people have expressed the same about Musicuentos.

So, my goals are two: 1) to have a place where people can say "thank you" in a financial way for the content on Musicuentos and 2) a place to share extra resources with the people who are getting the most out of Musicuentos.com.
