I have been a teacher for 6 years now. My first three years of experience were in Tegucigalpa, Honduras teaching the English component of a early partial immersion school program to native Spanish speakers. I have since returned to Michigan and have been teaching in an early total one-way Spanish Immersion first grade classroom. I love having had both experiences in bilingual education and love watching students grow in their language development at such a young age!
I am a very visual learner myself, so I tend to organize my classroom and activities to be visually pleasing and educationally helpful. Being a language teacher, I love to provide many opportunities for students to talk together and to teach each other. I also try to bring out each child's strengths by teaching in many different ways as I believe that each student was created uniquely!

I've been asking sellers for years to translate their items into Spanish, so please don't hesitate to ask me the same! I was oh-so-excited whenever anyone said yes to my request, so I'd be happy to help you in any way I can!
