I have been in the education field since 1998. I have successfully pioneered two dual immersion programs at two school sites. The experience of working in different school sites, communities and states along with wonderful teammates, has helped me fine tune my teaching as well as produce curriculum that has depth. I have taught in both a bilingual (Spanish) setting and English classroom. I have branched out of state and worked as a Language Support Specialist. The graphic organizers, units, and PowerPoints I create are intriguing, innovative, and are powerful tools to help the students grasp new concepts/ideas and help them succeed.
I don't stay with one particular style due to the fact that each year my class needs change. I am a PowerPoint enthusiast, as well as graphic organizer user, chants, charts, and any other resources I can grasp to help my students. I do tend to teach thematically, but like I said, it all depends on my students' needs.
I have been a presenter at CABE (California Association for Bilingual Education), 2-Way CABE, California Advisory Council on Educational Events, San Diego County of Education, and at the University of San Diego.
BA Liberal Studies from CSU San Marcos Teaching Credential and Masters Degree in Teaching and Learning with an emphasis on Bilingual Education from the University of San Diego and an Administrative Credential from National University
I enjoy what I do. I love creating curriculum, if there is something that you may need help with, perhaps I can be of assistance to you. Please let me know..happy teaching!
