I have experience in teaching lower elementary students for four years. I taught bilingual students in both English and Spanish. I especially love teaching with a focus on state standards -The TEKS in Texas- in order to arrive at great results. I believe if we begin with the end in mind we are much more likely to achieve great academic results faster. At a time when teaching demands so much rigor we can respond by using quality materials and having a clear concept about the most important knowledge and skills that our students must possess.
My style is to present information and then facilitate the learning and practicing of the skill. I believe that most students want to learn naturally and it is the teacher's job to guide them in their journey. Many teachers are fighting an unnecessarily difficult fight in their schools when they are trying to teach because they don't have the right materials. I believe in having great materials and using them at appropriate times. In my experience, students come to us with many different academic and life experiences. Part of teaching them is engaging them with materials that make it easy for them to relax and let their minds soak information.

I love my parents and my two brothers. I also love spending time with friends and with my fiancee. In the future I plan to have three children and to educate them myself.
