I am a second grade teacher in Wisconsin. I teach in a simultaneous bilingual program where I teach students to become fully bilingual in English and Spanish. I love my job!
I believe that every child can succeed, and it's our job to figure out what clicks for that kid, and help them get there! I LOVE LOVE LOVE getting to work with kids and give them the opportunity to truly be bilingual - able to read, write, and speak and comprehend - in Spanish and English by the time they finish 5th grade.
None yet :)
In college I double majored in Spanish and Elementary Education, and upon graduating, got certified for 6-12/13, and All Ages World Language. Then, during my first year of teaching, I went through a program and added on licenses for Bilingual and ESL onto my 6-12/13 license :)
I'm a newlywed loving life, and saving up for a house with my husband, waiting to start our next adventure together!
