TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught English Language Arts in an inner city high school setting for 12 years, and in this context, have taught regular, intervention, and GATE classes in grades 9 through 12. Currently, I am an Instructional Coach who specializes in helping teachers implement SDAIE strategies for Long Term English Learners in their classrooms. I am an expert at designing, co-designing, and coaching others towards designing rigorous, CCSS based SIOP units that embed SDAIE strategies throughout, allowing English Learners to access grade level curriculum in ELA, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. At the college level, I have taught academic writing and philosophy discussion sections at UCSD.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a constructivist in terms of educational philosophy. I implement project based learning in my classroom, with extremely rigorous culminating tasks, the lessons building up to which are thoroughly hyper-scaffolded to allow all learners to be able to access the curriculum. I do not believe that a quiet classroom is the best environment for learning. Since I am committed to Universal Access, all my lessons and/or units conform to the Gradual Release of Responsibility Model of lesson design (I Do, We Do, You Do It Together, You Do It Alone). Since they involve purposeful grouping, all my lessons and/or units automatically address the CCSS for Speaking and Listening.
