The Special Education and ESL teaching experiences prepared me for the classroom by fusing strategies with technology to strengthen student's knowledge and academic skills. It's truly a team effort. Students succeed when effort is applied.
As an ESL Teacher, the position seeks first to understand then be understood. As a team, the Lead Content Teachers and myself examined weaknesses in lesson plans, teaching strategies and classroom management policies. A specific "criteria for success" was established then implemented. Examples noted.

As an ESL Coach, I joined a strong collaboration with the Principal, Administration and faculty. The goal, identify, address and resolve challenges teachers experience in the classroom. Support for the teachers was provided by modeling with follow-up meetings. Data helped determine necessary adjustments. Keeping fidelity of the standards was paramount. Helping support teachers with implementation of successful strategies was conducted individually and in weekly cluster meetings.
Teaching Spanish I & II was fun and exhilarating.

The curriculum focused on the global impact of the culture's dialect/language, history (traditions, holidays, beliefs) and economics.
