15 years in the Rochester City School District. Currently teaching at The Rochester International academy. It is a two year program for newcomer refugee and immigrant children.I currently teach 1st/2nd grade. My primary focus is all of their general subjects, while "ESLing" the lessons for optimal learning. I have taught grades Pre K-6!
I believe children deserve my enthusiasm, love, and trust. My students succeed and grow as English language learners because they feel loved and cared for everyday. I also think that teaching children through teachable moments is important. I let my kiddos into my life and they know a lot about me and my family.In turn, they trust me enough to share their needs and wants.
