About Me

My name is Kara Jacobs. I have been teaching Spanish for 20 years. During that time, I have changed my teaching style tremendously. I started as a traditional-textbook-grammar notes-vocabulary lists-teacher and have now transitioned to being a CI-TPRS-cultural content-proficiency focused-authentic resources using-teacher! I use this blog to reflect on my teaching and to share resources.

I addition to teaching and blogging, I am also a presenter, resource creator, and consultant.

I am married to an Economics teacher and we have two sons, ages 15 and 11. We live in the beautiful state of New Hampshire. I love to travel with my family and with my students too! I am also a runner. I have run seven marathons... and during those long training runs is where many of my ideas come to me!

  1. Hello! I love your blog. It has so many ideas and resources.

    I was wondering about the resources for Gran Hotel....I can't seem to find them anywhere. What am I missing?

    Thanks for your time!

  2. And my name is Travis, by the way.

  3. Kara, me encantó tu presentación en TCI en Maine, gracias por tu dedicación y por compartir recursos. Estoy maravillada con tu talento para diseñar material didáctico con material auténtico.He regresado insiparada y con un montón de ideas nuevas para mis clases.

  4. ¡Hola! I met you at the end of your session at the just-finished MaFLA conference. I was hoping to find resources/songs of yours for Spanish 1. Anything you can direct my way would be great!

    Mucho gusto y buena noches,

  5. Kara, how can I contact you about TpT? I just made a big purchase from you $25 and one of the songs/stories it says is there, is not. rififield@kitteryschools.com

    1. Hello. I tried to email you but it got kicked back to me. I fixed the problem (I think it was that El Mismo Sol was not there?). If you re-download it, it will be there. Sorry about that! I uploaded the new pic when I updated that bundle, but forgot to upload the actual doc. I appreciate you telling me. You can email me at ceauthres at gmail. if you have any other questions.
