TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Now Retired. One semester teaching freshman composition at university level. One semester teaching math & science to 4-5-6th graders in Catholic school. Ten years as a high school classroom Spanish teacher

MY TEACHING STYLE

Used TPRS--Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling to help students acquire the Spanish language in the same all people learn: through hearing comprehensible input. Ignored teaching grammar as a discreet topic, but only in context. Used contemporary Latin pop songs to help students learn vocabulary, chunks of language and poetic forms of expression.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Wrote a descriptive essay about my hometown, Edinburg, Texas, during my senior year in college. It was titled "The Woolen Sarape" and was first published in an anthology titled "The Mexican American: From Caricature to Self-Portrait", edited by Edward Simmen, PhD. This has been re-named "The Barrio" and has been published twenty times over the last few decades in a college level freshman composition textbook (also used in advanced English courses at the high school level.
