I am a school teacher beginning my 9th year in the classroom. I am currently teaching 4th grade Reading/Writing to bilingual students who are transitioning to all English instruction this school year. I began my teaching career as a 2nd grade bilingual teacher. In these 9 years of teaching I've had the pleasure of teaching all elementary grade levels! When I decided to teach I only wanted to teach Kindergarten. I felt it was where I would have the opportunity to make the most impact on students establish because I'd be able to establish a good foundation for their education. However; now that I've experienced teaching K through fifth I can truly say that I LOVE all grade levels!
I pride myself in creating an environment in which my students feel comfortable even when they are been challenged. I attempt to reach all students regardless of their academic strengths and weaknesses and help them grow academically. My goal during instruction is to keep students engaged and motivated. One way I achieve this is by tailoring resources I use in my classroom to the group I'm teaching. I am continuously creating new resources to fit the needs of my students.
