I am a Certified K-8 Teacher, graduate of the University of Michigan, School of Education's ELMAC (Master of Art in Education with Elementary Certification) Program. I have acquired over a decade's worth of teaching experience. that have reached as far away as Shanghai, China, where I lived for 3 years. Throughout my teaching career, I have taught Spanish to lower and upper elementary students at several Ann Arbor Public Schools and Kindergarten institutions in the Southeast Michigan area. In addition, I worked as a Substitute Teacher to K-8 students at St. Francis Catholic School in Ann Arbor, South Arbor Academy in Ypsilanti and as a Special Education Substitute Teacher for the Washtenaw Intermediate School District (WISD). I had the opportunity to work at Detroit Academy of Arts and Sciences (DAAS) as a 5th Grade Teacher to inner-city students for the 2007-2008 school year where I also initiated and implemented a Spanish after school program. My prior employment experiences not only afforded independent work opportunities, but also effective communication and interaction with people of diverse cultural backgrounds and affiliations, which includes co-workers, colleagues, and community leaders. I am a results-oriented individual with a strong administrative and organizational background, along with quality problem-solving and decision-making abilities and skills. My educational philosophy includes the respect and care of my students by establishing a classroom culture of respect and appreciation for self and others, along with responsibility for own learning and high expectation for all students in a culturally diverse and enriched environment; integration of curriculum; instruction and assessment aligned for maximum student engagement, learning and understanding; and my preparedness with effective lesson plans, which incorporates differentiated instruction designed with each student's zone of proximal development. My students benefit greatly from the infusion of the Spanish culture, language, and perspective as part of their learning experience, along with a worldview inclusiveness and respect of all cultures, because of my unique appreciation and veneration for cultural diversity; my corresponding background and fluency with the Spanish language, including knowledge of both Chinese and French language and culture.
