My first year teaching I taught ESOL at Greenacres Elementary school in Palm Beach County. At this Title I school I taught a range of ESOL students from Kindergarten to Second grade. I am currently teaching at Palm Springs Elementary School where I teach Third grade with an ESOL cluster.
Due to my population of students, most being second language learners, my teaching style is centered on visual representations, demonstrations, and interactive materials. I believe that learning is a process that can only be achieved through direct interaction. I involve my students in their own learning as much as possible. I intend to direct my students to develop critical thinking and problem solving strategy that they can use throughout their life as a learner.
