I am a 4k-5th grade ELL(English Language Learner) teacher. Many of my students begin school with no English speaking, reading, or writing abilities. With such a wide range of ages and abilties, it is hard to find a variety of materials. I love creating my own visual activities! (a must for ELL students) I enjoy creating materials that I can tailor to the individual students.
I love doing hands-on activities. I try to design my lessons, so not only will the students remember the lesson, it will be memorable!
I recently have been named a 2012 Teacher or Distinction by Partners in Education and the Green Bay Chamber of Commerce.
I began my classes while I was in the Military onboard my Navy ship. While out to sea I was able to complete some basic courses. I continued by general Education courses in San Diego. After leaving the Military I completed my teaching degree requirements at the University of WI-Stevens Point. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science, certified in Elementary-Middle School and Teaching English as a Second Language.
I currrently live in Green Bay, WI. Go Pack! I have been teaching in Green Bay for five years as an English as a Second Language teacher, and I really love my job and the awesome students I get to work with!
