>>>My name is Kathleen Gomez Sanchez. I’m currently studying at the University of Puerto Rico in Aguadilla.
I’m finishing my degree on Secondary English in Education and integrating multimedia technology in
education. I plan to continue my master’s degree and be completely prepared in all the areas required for this
field in order to become or form part of many great teachers in the English Department.


>>>>As a future teacher my hope is for students to form part of their learning process by using or integrating technology.
In this century students are born with technology; technology that in the past years we haven’t seen, this means as teachers,
we have to be up to date to be able to create innovative lessons with the use of technology.

I: Introduction
imagesCAE5FITB.jpg Prepositions are used daily; we use them to tell the time (I’m going to the mall on Saturday),
place (The old man sat next to me) spatial (The stars are beyond far away). They link nouns, pronouns and
phrases to other words within a sentence. Students will learn most common prepositions and their respective
definitions.They will have the opportunity to visualize the use of prepositions by represented illustrations while
helping in the way of selecting the correct use of prepositions. This will help students know how to use them
appropriately within a sentence. They will learn how to use the appropriate prepositions in sentences according
to the classifications of the place, time and space.
