I have taught bilingual education at inner city, Title 1, schools in both Dallas and San Antonio for a total of 16 years. I have also worked with the Boy Scouts of America as a Program Manager and a Scout Master for 5 years.
I enjoy integrating students' background knowledge into our curriculum to make it more relevant. Understanding your students and their families will definitely have an impact on your teaching delivery and classroom climate. I allow my students to explore to solve problems and assist in finding multiple strategies to solve problems. We create projects together that apply knowledge with concrete concepts.
