TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began teaching ESL as a volunteer. I taught English overseas twice, for a total or 3 years. I've taught Pre-K through 10th grade as well as adults, either in the U.S. or overseas. The subjects I've taught are as follows: Pre-K-6 & grades 9 & 10 ESL, elementary & secondary reading & writing, world cultures and geography, Texas history, grades K-5 Japanese, reading intervention, and sociology and ESL at the university level. In addition, I have tutored students in Japanese and French. I love teaching and am a great idea person.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love using cooperative learning work stations as much as possible. I often use them for targeted-intervention in response to data.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

As a high school student, I earned 1st place in the regional PTSA writing competition 2 years in a row. Also in high school, I won the Bronze medal in the Academic Decathlon Fine Arts category at the state level. I was selected to participate in the Rotary Club Student Exchange Program to Germany. 2 years in a row I earned awards of excellence in French while at the University of Texas in Austin. I also won Honorable Mention in the Japanese Speech Contest while at university. In addition, I even had one of my poems published in the Sam Houston Review when I was in graduate school.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Master of Education in Teaching English as a Second Language from Grand Canyon University Graduate Studies in Sociology at Sam Houston State Universiy Bachelor of Arts degree in anthropology with a minor in French from the University of Texas at Austin
