The American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP) launched the inaugural National Teach Spanish Day on September 30, 2019.
The purpose of National Teach Spanish Day is to promote the teaching of Spanish as a profession to call attention to the current Spanish teacher shortage in the US and to emphasize the importance of Spanish as a world language.
To commemorate the Spanish language and the invaluable work of Spanish teachers on National Teach Spanish Day, we prompted students to describe a Spanish instructor who changed their feelings about speaking Spanish. We received an extraordinary number of submissions from across the country and have had just a terrific week reading them all.

We are honored to play a small role in partnering with you as you work to foster a love of language in your classroom every day.
Thank you for that opportunity.
