Special Education Bilingual Education Grades K-5
I love to teach using hands-on methods and lot of art activities! Since I am currently teaching in a self-contained kindergarten class, having my students think outside the box and use their hands is the way to go!

I have a double bachelors degree in sociology and early elementary child hood education. I have a masters degree in bilingual education (spanish) and I have a students with disabilities certification.
I am not sure when I decided I wanted to embark on the wonderful journey of becoming an educator but I do know it had so much to do with my own education experience. I have always lived in Queens, NY and always gone to public schools. I have such wonderful memories from elementary school and just how amazing my teachers were. I remember so many wonderful experiences that I was able to have because of my teachers and the joy school brought me. In todays world, elementary school has drastically changed and at times it feels as if the "higher-ups" are trying to extinguish all of the joy and I feel that it is my mission to make these children love school!!!!!
