I have taught 2nd and 3rd grade bilingual, E.L.L., 2nd-grade Dual Language, S.F.A./Title I Reading Facilitator, Librarian, Technology Specialist, and 7th and 8th Grade Middle School Spanish
I believe teaching and learning should be fun! Students need the opportunity to create and be creative.
Presented at the Illinois Statewide Conference for Teachers Serving Linguistically and Culturally Diverse Students in December 2006 on the topic of Classroom Management.
Graduated from Northern Illinois University with a B.S. in Elementry Education. Continued Education at: Northeastern Illinois University, University of Phoenix, University of Nevada Las Vegas, and Sierra Nevada College.
I'm currently in my 13th year of teaching. I took a short break to raise my family and worked several different part-time positions. I continued to work as a substitute teacher, an interpreter for a nearby school district, and as a library assistant for children at a public library in the Chicago suburbs. I currently teach 7th and 8th-grade Middle School Spanish and LOVE integrating elements of technology into all of my lessons.
