I have done many different things within the education field. I have been an instructional aide, a teacher, a substitute teacher, and individual aide, a camp counselor, and an afterschool director. I love teaching!
My teaching style incorporates showing my students that I care about them as people and not just students in my classroom. I love to build relationships with my students and their families. In return, we usually have great communication. I am tough and have high expectations of my students within their abilities, but I also love having fun in the classroom through discussions, games, projects, and hands-on activities.
I have an Associate degree in Early Childhood Education, a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, and a Master's in Education with a Reading Literacy Specialization.
I am married with three children and I currently live in Salem, Illinois. I am from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Yes, I am fully bilingual in English and Spanish! :-)
