I've been teaching in my current school for 4 years and 13 years of experience. I have the best job in the world working in a Title 1 building learning along side with mostly ESL students and many special education students I have learned from some of the BEST building specialists who truly are amazing, writing curriculum and able teach their specialty all over the nation!
Cooperative Learning with Hands On Inquiry opportunities
My awards come from the tiny gains that students make. Those students who have been in the states for one year and now can understand text in English, helping my gifted students reach above level expectations and beyond and finally watching all the light bulbs go off everyday!!! I get to pilot many technology opportunities and new curriculum!
