I have successfully pioneered two dual immersion programs at two school sites. I have taught in both a bilingual (Spanish) setting and English classroom. The graphic organizers and PowerPoints I created are intriguing, innovative, and powerful tools to help the students grasp new concepts/ideas and help them succeed.
I don't stay with one particular style due to the fact that each year my class needs change. I am a PowerPoint enthusiast, as well as graphic organizer user, chants, charts, and any other resources I can grasp to help my students. I do tend to teach thematically, but like I said, it all depends on my students needs.
I will be presenting at the CABE (California Association for Bilingual Education) in February of 2009. I have made other presentations for teachers at my school and for students in the university setting studying to become educators.
