Biography
Experience of 30 years of teaching mostly in the second grade. Have taught other grades including Reading tutor and ESOL self contained class.
Personal Message:
I am a bilingual teacher who learned spanish as a first language. My parents had a spanish tutor for many years so we could keep learning both languages at the same time. I encourage two language acquisition as it helps with learning vocabulary and with becoming bicultural individuals.
Having to learned a second language made me very aware of how students learn language and loved it enough to study it for my Masters in Bilingual/Bicultural Education from St. John's University in N.Y.
