@DiegoOjeda66 Mil gracias, Diego. @Jentechnology Thank you. I am determined. @Jentechnology My greatest fear is questions. Thanks for the encouragement. @WorldChanger31 Gracias, amiga.🙏🏼One strategy for goal setting that I love is to set a calendar reminder to check in with your goal periodically.❤️ #pd4uandme @emilyfranESL Tengo presentaciones sobre objetivos, Translanguaging, y interactive word walls. No sé 🤷‍♀️. Estoy nerviosa.Buenos días. I am a Spanish learner and my goal is to co-present a section of PD in español by the end of this school year. #pd4uandmeThe many costs of gentrification.
