Hello! ¡Hola! Nyob zoo! I am one of seven ELL teachers at SPMA! I usually provide academic English language support to students in Kindergarten, Third, and Fourth grades. My favorite thing about teaching English is when kids make connections between their home language and English. Another favorite is when kids start to notice patterns in words and sentences! When I am not teaching and learning (I learn a lot from kids!), I like to spend time with my husband, my daughter, my dog, my cat, and my friends. I like to read, watch Netflix, sew, ride my bike, and roller skate. I believe that being multi-lingual is a benefit, not a limitation. I adore and admire all of my students and their families!
Note: Email is the best way to communicate with me.
Fun fact: 2020-2021 is my 24th year of teaching in SPPS and my 10th year at SPMA.
