TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Kindergarten, 3rd grade, bilingual education, and K-7 grade experience. Extra curricular activity work includes journalism, writing, art, computers, publishing, and American Sign Language.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Many of my lessons and worksheets promote a dynamic hands on approach to classroom learning that help students not only absorb but enjoy learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

All campus award for MLK Mural All Campus award for diversity awareness program All campus award for Aids awareness mural

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I speak three languages: English, Spanish and Sign languages. Due to this I will try to create bilingual materials for everything I upload. If you do not see a Spanish version of something and need it, please contact me and I will see if I can provide it for you.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a survivor of two near fatal car accidents. The struggle to recover has not only given me an internal strength but the ability to create materials that help students achieve the best that they are capable of.
