TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been an ESOL teacher for 5 years and I have taught grades K-12. I have worked in both Virginia, and New York, with various populations from Spanish-speaking students to refugees with low-incidence languages. I currently teach secondary English Language Learners in grades 7-12 who read and write in English at the first grade level, on average. Some of my students have been identified as SIFE (Students with Interrupted Formal Education), and many are not literate in their first language. It is my job to help all students be successful in American schools, and to eventually reach the rigorous New York State criteria to graduate with a high school diploma.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching is very student-centered. Every year I am honored to teach different students with different backgrounds, cultures, languages, and experiences. In building relationships with them, I am able to appropriately push and challenge my students to help them improve their English language proficiency. I often refer to the researcher Jim Cummins' theory of "i + 1" which is the idea that "i" is what students already know, and that we need to teach at least one level above their current level of understanding in order to challenge them and truly help them grow as learners. I build rapport with my students so that I can serve as not only a teacher, but a mentor.

I hold multiple New York State teaching certifications which include Childhood Education (Grades 1-6), Special Education/Students with Disabilities (Grades 1-6), TESOL (K-12), ELA (Grades 7-12), and Social Studies (Grades 7-12). I am currently a doctorate student at the University of Rochester working towards my Ed.D. in Teaching and Curriculum.
