I have taught Elementary Title Math and Early Head Start. Currently, I am the Middle School EL teacher in a Magnet school. I have about 70 students that I share with another EL teacher. Some students have never been to school before and some are just lacking in one area. My students are from mostly Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
My students are behind so a lot is trying to catch them up to what they have missed by not going to school at all or not going to school in the US. We fill in the gaps in many different ways but make sure that we read, write, speak and listen daily in some way. I like hands-on activities and ones that make kids move but there are also times that they need to learn by rote methods.
I have done a lot of work with Bias Review, Content Review, and writing test questions for the ACCESS English Language proficiency test as well as other state's English Language Proficiency tests. I also worked on aligning ACCESS to the Common Core for the ACCESS test.
Bachelors degree in Elementary Education with a Minor in Math and Spanish. Master's degree in Reading Education and Endorsement in EL.
Love working with and learning from my students!!
