TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We have taught all subjects in 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade for six years at two different international schools, one in Honduras and one in Bolivia, both having an almost 100 percent ESL student population.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Our teaching styles depends on the context, but mainly it involves a mini lesson, where students are allowed to participate, process, transfer, apply, and engage with knowledge being learned in meaningful ways. By using higher order thinking activities and projects such as Socratic Seminar and Real-World Projects related to food literacy, agriculture, and science, our students have acquired knowledge that goes beyond the curriculum.
