I am currently a 1st grade Dual Language teacher at Banting Elementary in Waukesha, WI. This is my second year at Banting. Before Banting, I was a 1st grade bilingual teacher at White Rock Elementary, also in the School District of Waukesha. I lived in Guatemala for six years. In Guatemala I worked as an ESL teacher and taught 2nd grade at an international school in (teaching in English) for two years.
I love teaching Math and Reading Workshop. I would say my style is lovingly firm. I try to hold my students accountable both academically and socially. I love to teach them to be kind, compassionate, and loving people.
I graduated Summa Cum Laude... Does that count?
I graduated from Judson University with a degree in elementary and middle school education. I have an emphasis in Art, Language Arts, and Social Studies. I also have taken Spanish Grammar and seminary classes at the Central American Theological Seminary in Guatemala. I have my bilingual certificate and am in the process of getting my Master's.
I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful kids - Jeremiah and Mikaiela (We call her Mika). :)
