TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have over 25 years experience as a certified teacher of Pre-Kinder through grade 16 teaching both Spanish and French in multi-age classrooms. Includes over 12 years experience mentoring preservice teachers in the classroom.
Trained and received Modified Oral Proficiency ACTFL Certification and have expertise with sequentially appropriate pedagogy. Served 15 years as a member of our Local, State and National Task Force Committees.
Over 10 years experience working with our local Migrant Education Bilingual Summer Program teaching Math, Science, Reading and Writing to children Pre-Kinder to grade 11.
I am currently working with a dual language program of Pre-Kinder to Fifth grade and teaching both Heritage and non-native speakers of Spanish.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in language immersion as the means to help children communicate in the Foreign Language classroom. My activities always have an interactive focus for group communication where each student has an important role during the activity. Students need to know that they are valued and able to contribute to all student directed activities.  
Students tend to learn in different ways and learning materials should be designed for self-pacing and all levels of student ability. Thematic songs, rhythm and movement not only aid in memorization and cognitive development but make the activities engaging and FUN!
