TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I work in a large, urban high school in Milwaukee, WI. I work primarily with refugee and Spanish bilingual students from all over the world. Therefore, much of the products I sell have a strong visual or graphic component to them. Furthermore, some items will be translated into Spanish as well. Many of the items present on my TpT will work for students at lower grade levels.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is that I view myself much more as a facilitator or coach when it comes to the classroom. I rarely give notes or lecture my students. I use tons of collaboration and visuals for my ELLs.
