TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching English Language Learners in an inner city school district for the past 32 years. I design ESL resources that are aligned with CCSS, WIDA and the SIOP Model. My resources are specifically designed to promote language acquisition while meeting the goals of content area subjects. I have had great success with teaching early primary ELL students to read and write in English. The strategies and techniques that I have developed over the years have a great impact on this success. I am happy to be able to share them here on TpT. I also have helped design curriculum for ELL learners in my district.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As an inner city ELL teacher, I feel the most powerful way to teach language is through concrete experiences. Prior knowledge needs to be developed to help children build their CALP skills. I use the content areas of science and social studies to help develop my students' language acquisition. I provide many concrete expereinces for the children to interact with the concept being taught. I feel this helps them internalize both the concept and the language.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was nominated for Teacher of the Year. The honor was that I was nominated by a former student who became an ESL teacher. I was her first teacher in this country when she was a little girl. I received an award for using art in the classroom to promote learning.
