I have been teaching Dual immersion for eight years and have found that there are not enough materials available so I began making my own. The first four years teaching were in Kindergarten and I am currently in 3rd.
I use a constructivist approach. I teach using CGI math strategies, Writers Workshop, Guided Reading, and Daily 5. I believe that it is important to adapt instruction to the students' needs. I am a teacher that is constantly learning and adapting with my students.
Founding teacher of a dual immersion school.
Bachelors of Art from Loyola Marymount University. Currently working on a masters in Dual Language Development from CSULB.
I started a dual immersion program at my site and it has definitely been an interesting journey. Through it I have found that there are amazing teachers and students everywhere but we often lack the resources necessary to be successful. I work to make the resources necessary for teachers and I am always looking to find ways to help my students get the resources they need. These are some quotes that I try to remember daily: "Everyone is doing the best that they can." "Be kind to one another."
