24 years NYS public school educator ESL/ENL K-12 Spanish K-12 French K-12 Italian K-12 Reading/ELA K-12 English 5-8
My teaching style cannot be described in one word. I am an encourager, model, and coach. I expect the best for all students--despite their educational background. Each student's success is measured by his/her own personal growth. I encourage my students to be inquisitive and think "outside the box." I show passion for my subject and it is contagious. I give positive energy in all that I do and hope that it will reach and affect the student's learning in positive ways.
