I thought it was the perfect opportunity to get a pic with one of my favorite classroom additions this year! My rose gold #microphone which matches my sweater today 💗 . . For those of you who don’t know me I don’t have a #teachervoice. I am a very soft spoken person so not only is this a perfect thing for me to amplify my voice but it’s also fun. I also like the clear and crisp sound to pronounce words in Spanish since it’s a phonetic language. It’s wireless and super easy to setup. The battery life is pretty good too. I wouldn’t go back to no microphone 🎤 💗 It also has some fun echo settings. . . . . . #gratitude30 #spanishteacher #teachersfollowteachers #teachers #teachersofinstagram #teachergram #teachersofig #rosado #iteachtoo #instalook #weareteachers #teacherfashion #teacherfashionista #fashionteacher #lovepink #rosegold #ootd #teacherfashion #teacherfashionista #instastyle #stylish #teacherlife #classroomdecor #peruviangirl #hispanic #latina #fallishere #microphone #teacherfavorites
