Spanish Club & Travel Club! 
Señora Maudlin is hosting the Akins Spanish Club. Spanish Club meets the last Thursday of each month during FIT in Mrs. Maudlin's classroom. ¡viva español! UPDATE: There will not be any Spanish Club meetings for the Fall 2020 semester due to virtual learning and Covid-19 safety. 
She also sponsors the Akins Travel Club. Come learn more about Señora Maudlin’s field-trips to Spanish Speaking Countries during the Summers!  Faculty Sponsor:  Ms. Brooke Maudlin at brooke.maudlin@austinisd.org

Spanish Club is all about "comida" and culture. We learn to read recipes in Spanish and prepare traditional snacks from around the Spanish-speaking world and learn about cultural practices. 
Mrs. Maudlin first traveled with Akins students in Summer 2013 with Spanish/French teacher Ms. Garcia. They spent 1 week in Paris and 1 week touring Spain. Students saw places they had only read about in textbooks! 
Summer 2014 they traveled to Puerto Rico and in June 2016 they traveled to Costa Rica! See photos below. Our most recent trip was to Puerto Rico in June 2019. Email Mrs. Maudlin for enrollment information at brooke.maudlin@austinisd.org.
