Claudia Abboud

2010 Teacher Winner

School: East Lake Elementary School, Spanish
Project: A Flare of Hispanic Culture

Mrs. Abboud improved the foreign language experience for all of the students at East Lake Elementary, from pre-kindergarten to 5th grade. By coordinating in-school field trips, Mrs. Abboud created direct connections to the content standards by exposing students to cultural events that included folkloric dance and musical groups. Students also created maracas, piñatas and other artifacts that are representative of Hispanic countries. The project provided real-life, educational connections that enriched the curriculum and increased the students’ knowledge of various Spanish-speaking countries.
