TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a teacher for fifteen years. I taught almost all levels from elementary to higher education except middle school. At the elementary level, I have been a bilingual teacher for several school districts. I have also taught Spanish in high school and college. Now, I am a member of the University of North Texas Collaborative Region X for Science Teachers in order to improve scientific awareness in my district.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have different teaching styles according to the subject and grade level. Students from low grade levels love to learn by discovering concepts through games or activities while students from upper grades are more involved in independent research or projects.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I graduated with Honors in Spanish Literature and I was a Magna Cum Laude student.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I earned a Bachelor's degree in Political Science in my home country and a Bachelor's degree in Spanish and minor in Education from Whitman College, WA. I pursued higher education in Spanish Literature receiving a Master's degree from the University of Kansas.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I strongly believe that biliteracy and bilingualism are necessary in today's world. The lack of bilingual resources several years ago forced me to create my own materials according to what I needed in the classroom. I am originally from Peru but I have lived for 22 years in this country. I have three beautiful children who are immersed in bilingual education. My own children suggested ideas and participated in the process of creation.
