I am a hard-working person who has come from a foreign country, with a different language, and who has followed her dreams. I am charismatic, enthusiastic, friendly, cooperative, a leader, and most important of all, I care for others. I love to help children achieve their goals. As a matter of fact; I put myself as an example. My name is Karen Melissa Ordonez, and I am passionate about teaching. I started at the bottom as an ELL student. During that time, it seemed impossible to get into a college. However, with a lot of effort I jumped my first obstacle, which was the acquisition of the English Language. Furthermore, challenges came such as intimidation at speaking for the lack of confidence. It was until my seven years of academic language acquisition I became fluent, and confident at speaking the (L2) my second language, which is English. My ambitions for success grew even bigger after my associate degree. Another big leap was about to come true. My bachelor's degree from Texas Woman's University, which came to the spring of 2013, with the degree of general studies with the specialization on Bilingual Education.
Now I am an experienced educator with over 8 years of experience in teaching Bilingual education. Excellent reputation for filling the gaps in bilingual students by improving students' performance and enhancing scholars' academic language acquisition.
Bilingual Instructional Coach –Kinder - 4th grade (1 year of experience)
I believe my passion for teaching, my degree and my cultural background as an ELL student make me an excellent candidate for your position. My loyalty, effectiveness and professionalism with my parents, students, and staff have opened me great job opportunities for all these years. However, I am about to close one door of my life working at Skyview elementary to open a new one following the New Path of the Bilingual Dual Language program to continue with my passion for embracing bilingualism, and biliteracy in RISD. Please feel free to contact me via phone or email at a time of your convenience to discuss my background as well as the requirements for the role.
Sincerely, Karen Melissa Ordonez. 214-8827539 – Karen.firstname.lastname@example.org
