I have been teaching Foreign Language Arts and Native Language Arts for 7 years focusing on Communication and Latin American literature. I have also taught Health for three years. Being a former ELL student, I became certified in TESOL as well.
I think students should learn through discovery. We live in a county where information is absolutely everywhere, sometimes overwhelmingly so. It is important that we teach students to use the multitude of resources available to them to find information. I also strongly believe that it is imperative for us to tap into our students curiosity, because it makes gaining knowledge a life-long pursuit.
Yet to be added
I obtained my Bachelor of Arts with a major in Modern Foreign Languages, with a focus on Contemporary Spanish Literature. I minored in Philosophy. I completed the Teacher Education Program and became certified while completing my Bachelors. I completed my Master of Science in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), and became certified immediately afterwards. I am currently completing my second Master's Degree in Educational Leadership. I will finish my degree in December of 2017, and will earn certification as a School Building Leader, as well as a School District Leader during that time.
I am passionate in Latin American history and literature. I think students should be presented with the various versions of history and current events that exist, and that we should empower them to be able to choose and support which version they actually believe. I think textbooks are subjective to who wrote them, and where they were written. Lastly, I aim to teach my students skills that they can apply across content areas, instead of just thematic units. I am an educator in the pursuit of perfecting my craft, knowing that perfection will never be reached, but should still be aspired to.
