I have been teaching since 1991. I started in third grade, then looped 1st/2nd for several years and am now in 1st grade. I have a Masters Degree in ESL Education. I also teach education courses at our local community college.
I believe that everything we teach must be comprehensible for all students. We need to make our curriculum understandable using any means...books, pictures, videos, games, repetition...anything it takes.
So far I have not received any special honors or awards. I do what I do for the love of teaching.
BS in Elementary Education 1991-St. Bonaventure University, Olean, NY MA in Multilingual/ Multicultural Education 2008- University of Colorado, Boulder, CO
