Teaching since 2005! I have experience teaching first grade bilingual (1 year), middle school ESL in all grades and subjects (4 years), high school Spanish all grades and levels (3 years), and I am currently teaching online. I've been teaching online since 2016.
Two of my favorite things about teaching are the relationship building with the students and motivating them to succeed. How do I do that? By being patient, compassionate, humorous, and engaging. My classroom is a no judgement zone. I also use a lot of scaffolding, modeling and TPR. I always strive to teach kids skills they can use in the real world and try to incorporate those skills in my products.
Yet to be added
I have a master's in education from DePaul University with a focus in secondary education and Spanish. My bachelor's is in Spanish from Loyola University Chicago. I have endorsements in ESL (K-12), middle school, Language Arts (5-8) and Social Studies (5-8).
My store name is Nuggets of Knowledge because I love teaching nuggets that peak students' interest to the point that they can't wait to dive into the materials or the lesson. I love teaching kids how to think, not what to think. I love inspiring them with life stories about historical figures with information that's beyond the text book.
