I have taught in elementary schools since 1996 as a bilingual classroom teacher K-5th ( have taught all grade levels) in English only and dual immersion language programs. i have also worked as a reading specialist and staff development specialist. I am currently doing my doctoral studies in curriculum and instruction specializing in second language learners. I have presented at conferences in Maryland, New Mexico and California. I currently work in classrooms across the U.S. and do school district consulting.
I love working with teachers and teaching children literacy through interdisciplinary methodology.
