I have worked for the SFUSD for thirteen years, mainly, as a Spanish Bilingual teacher. I started as an Emergency teacher in 2000. I taught first grade, full time for four straight years, but I stopped teaching full time because of my son's health, and resorted to substitute teaching from K to 12 grade. I taught kindergarten last year, and I taught third grade this school year.
I am currently completing my CSET exams for a preliminary credential, (Multiple Subjects BCLAD Spanish). I completed a Master's degree in Teaching in 2000. I previously completed a Master's degree in Museology, in Mexico, in 1985; hence why I pursued becoming a bilingual teacher.
I became a bilingual teacher not only because of my linguistic abilities (I am literate in French, English, and Spanish) but also because I do believe that education is the key in coming together, as people, to build a better world for the future generations. For that simple reason, education should be provided to children, regardless of economics, nationality, or any other description.
