Dear Middle School Spanish Teachers,

As part of my master's program, I'm required to conduct research to improve my practice. I've settled on the following research question: How do middle school Spanish teachers address the concept of gender nonconformity when teaching a language that requires its speakers to assign gender? I have decided to survey and interview current and former Spanish teachers in order to gauge strategies and resources available. Therefore, I need your help! Please follow the link to the anonymous survey. If you are interested in participating in a short interview (can be in-person or remote), please contact me at Finally, I would love to examine lesson plans that relate to my topic. Please let me know if you would be willing to share.


Thanks for your help,
Jordan Lampenfeld
