I have over 20 years of teaching experience. I am certified in K-6 English/Spanish/ESL, and have a Master's degree in Spanish and English. I have taught high school and college Spanish and English for students in grades K-12, university and adults. I am bilingual (English and Spanish) and have experience and education in all areas of language learning in both languages as well as training in teaching reading and writing. I spent the past 11 years in Ecuador where I founded, directed, and taught English in an English school. Our students ranged in age from kindergarten to adults. I believe that all students can learn if the material is presented in the right way and one of my greatest joys in life is seeing a student who has been struggling suddenly "get it".
I have an active teaching certificate from the State of Texas for K-6 English/Bilingual/ESL teacher
I taught 3rd and 4th grade (all subject matter) for six years in Pasadena, TX at Kruse Elementary. My teaching certification is in Elementary Education (K-6) and covers all subject matter in these grades as well as special endorsements in Spanish/English, Bilingual and ESL education.
Learning to spell requires a combination of phonics and memorization. As an elementary school teacher, I have attended many seminars and workshops on different methods of teaching spelling, and believe I could develop an individualized program to help your child based on his or her strengths and weaknesses.
