Not knowing what point you want students to argue, I have kept criteria as general as possible. However, the main point is to be able to provide Spanish ELL students a rubric they can follow. The file name says argumentative, but you can use it for

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

5 years of teaching middle school grades all at a Chicago Public School. 1 year of biology; 1 year of English Language Arts; 3 years of Social Science; 4 years of Spanish Language Arts in our Dual Language Program. I have coached multiple sports for both girls and boys. I also received leadership training while in the service.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Give students agency over their learning and they will rise to the occasion. I believe in relational teaching, because if students don't believe I care about them, then they will not learn from me. As a dual language teacher, I put a lot of emphasis on language acquisition. As a middle school teacher, I put a lot of emphasis on student voice development. I use restorative justice techniques as my behavior management. Finally, as a social studies teacher, I focus on students building investigative & argumentative skills. I also teach history from the point of view of my students' Latino culture, so they understand that Latinos have been a part of American history from the beginning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

As of now no teaching accolades to speak of, but I get lots of tamales from my parents as a sign of gratitude for what I do for their kids and that's winning in my book. I graduated from my university Summa Cum Laude and was the student commencement speaker at my graduation. Lastly, I have a few awards from my time in the service.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from Northeastern Illinois University with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Bilingual / Bi-cultural Education with endorsements in Middle School, Language Arts, General Science, Social Science, and Spanish. Next year, I will be pursuing a Master's degree in Dual Language Education with an endorsement in Teacher Leadership (please pray for me). Lastly, I graduated from the U.S. Army's Primary Leadership Development Course and their Licensed Practical Nurse/EMT school.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I was a U.S. Army medical sergeant before becoming a teacher, hence my store name. I served in Iraq and Afghanistan and use my combat/leadership training and experience in my teaching everyday, but especially with the at-risk students to steer them in the right direction. I am a huge Chicago sports fan and though I wish no ill will to the White Sox, I am a north-sider for life. I have a loving wife who, God bless her soul, puts up with my bs daily and still has the heart to help me do this crazy, all-consuming job. My intent in creating this TPT account is to fill a void in education that I have been struggling with for years - finding content in Spanish. There is plenty out there to teach the Spanish language, but slim pickings for content resources in Spanish. This is especially true for content areas that are taught departmentally in middle and high schools. After years of spending sleepless nights creating content that I teach in Spanish that I will teach the next day, week or month, I have decided to share my work with you all in the hopes that you don't need to sacrifice personal hours and sleep creating what you need to teach, so you can focus on the many things that happen in your teaching day and other time killers, like grading. So, I hope this helps those of you who teach in a Dual Language/Bilingual setting or have recently immigrated Spanish-speaking students in your English-only classes who need to do assignments in their native language until they learn enough English to participate in the language of instruction.
