I have taught for over twenty five years in elementary grades. I first taught second and third grades. I later obtained my masters in ESL Education from Texas Christian University and became the ESL Specialist at our school for many years. My experience in helping students who speak another language become successful has lead me on a journey to write ebooks for children to raise student's vocabulary.
I believe in making connections with students so they have meaningful experiences to increase schema and view of the world. Knowing a student's learning style can help them discover their link to learning. For example some students are global learners and process information better by putting pieces inside the big picture. Right brain visual learners enjoy creating to understand with meaning. When teachers realize we learn in different ways it opens a whole new world of teaching.
