I have been teaching for over 20 years. I have taught third and fourth grade, and first to fifth grade ESL students. I received both my Master's and Bachelor's degrees from The University of Houston. I have certifications in teaching elementary through junior high, biology, reading, and English as a second language.
I understand that English language learners come with a wealth of culture experiences and no single approach is right for every child. My greatest passion for teaching ESL students is by helping them emerge and develop the English language into their everyday life and love learning. I inspire students to establish and express their own opinions in what they read.
The ESL Program is an academic program. It follows the same Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills as the regular classroom. The goal of ESL is to provide support, academic language skills for all content subjects, facilitation of classroom learning, and building of students' confidence.
