I have taught Kindergarten for the past 3 years in a Title I school. The majority of my students are English Lanuage Learners, and 90% of my students begin Kindergarten with no English vocabulary and no Pre-K experience.
I speak Spanish and English and use my knowledge of Spanish and the Spanish culture in my classroom teaching practices. I believe in strong parent-teacher communication and building confidence in my students' language abilities. I use positive reinforcement in my classroom and encourage my students to grow as Leaders for their peers and families.
I have been given the opportunity to do a radio interview for a local Spanish radio station to represent my County in how to prepare students for Kindergarten. I also have the honor of leading my Kindergarten team of teachers as their Grade Chair for 2 years.
Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgia State University and Masters Degree in Reading, Lanuage, and Literacy.
I love teaching ELLs! I love learning about different cultures and backgrounds! In my free time you'll find me relaxing with a good movie, traveling, or spending time with my Husband & family.
