I am currently in my 5th year of teaching. I've taught mostly Bilingual (English and Spanish) elementary grades and currently teach English as a Second Language grades Pre-K through 12th. In May I will graduate with a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction/Bilingual Education.
Through my work in the classroom with my students and my own academic work, I have gained a lot of experience with academic writing. Writing is a passion of mine and I believe that anyone can be a good writer, it's only a matter of understanding your own ideas and transferring them to paper.
My teaching style is very learner-focused. As a teacher, my job is to guide my students as they solve problems and overcome challenges and I will use whatever strategies best suit my students' individual learning style. I also implement Growth Mindset strategies, which are based on the idea that our abilities can change based on our efforts. In other words, if you work at it, you will get better at it!
I look forward to working with you and helping you to be successful!
