I have been an ESOL elementary teacher for over 7 years now. I've mostly worked with 5th grade students; however, I am currently working with all elementary grades and 9th-12th grade in contained ELL setting. I've had other jobs/careers and teaching is the most fulfilling profession I've ever had! I continue to grow as an educator and very interested in learning more from others.
I believe in engaging students in their education. That could involve hands on activities or/and actively learning through note taking, journals or projects.
OTEN (Oregon Technology in Education Network) grant 2004, The National Honors Scholars Society 2007, leadership member for our 5th grade team, and many other "awards" from my students. :-)
MAT from Willamette University, Salem, Oregon
