Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the school year 2020-2021!
This year, I will continue to provide academic language support to some of our ENL students. Previous to joining the ENL department, I was a classroom teacher for twelve years and I taught in mainstream, bilingual, and ESL classrooms in grades 3 to 6.
Through my life, I have worked very hard to achieve my dreams. As most of my students, I am a second language learner; therefore, I can relate to them, and I understand many of the challenges that learning a second language encompasses. However, I also know many shortcuts and strategies that my students can use to their advantage.
Teaching is my passion! I strongly believe in creating exceptional minds through the art of teaching. I hold my students to very high expectations/standards so that they follow that model to succeed in their lives.
With the support of my colleagues and parents I hope to help my students become independent, self-reliant, contributing members of their community.
