TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 16 years teaching experience. I began my career as a 2nd grade teacher. The majority of my career (13 years), I have worked as an elementary ESL teacher. In that capacity, I worked with students from kindergarten through grade 6 at all language development levels, but I most frequently worked with 3rd, 4th, & 5th grade students. I was an upper elementary Reading Teacher (grades 4-5) for two years, as well. I have also spent some of my summers teaching graduate classes at a local university for teachers seeking an ESL endorsement.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in hands-on activities with lots of visual aids and graphic organizers! Most of my products include picture clues for my ESL students! I am constantly creating and making learning materials that will support the unique needs of my students and engage them so that they can experience success and know that learning can be fun!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have been asked to present half-day professional development seminars at a nearby school district. For my own local school district, I was asked to present two "Teacher Toolkit" seminars for my colleagues, focusing on student engagement and formative assessment. I have served as a mentor teacher to five first year teachers and several teachers new to an ESL position.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a B.A. degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood. I have a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in English as a Second Language.
