TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Bilingual public elementary school teacher and a migrant education teacher in California. Supervised and mentored student teachers in California, New York, New Jersey, and Utah. Staff development for K-12 teachers. Taught both preservice and inservice teachers methods and theory for teaching social studies, reading, science, integrated curriculum, English as a Second Language, and multicultural curriculum and teaching.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Research-based, student-centered, inquiry-based, funds of knowledge, active, hands-on with ongoing assessment, high-standards to support students in becoming engaged, active and happy citizens in an interdependent world. Multilingual and multicultural curriculum and teaching. Ultimately, I hope that education supports students in growing their freedom and their responsibility to fellow classmates and the world's citizenry.
