I would like to share my 16 year experience as a native/bilingual speaking teacher with you. My experience includes four years of Pre-K and elementary school, two years in ESOL, two years in middle school, two years at college, and eight years in high school. Four of those high schools years I have been teaching AP Spanish with a 100% passing rate; I have facilitated workshops with the Fulton County Teachers, GADOE, and this summer I will conduct a session at the 93rd annual AATSP conference. Recently, I was invited to be an AP reader which will give me more opportunities to create a robust AP Spanish Language program if needed. Or to tutor you according to your needs.

I find myself to be a facilitator and a leader who advocates for differentiated instruction. I believe that education needs to be combined with technology nowadays and valuable assessments are the key to success for our students; as a teacher, I hope to grow professionally every day. I expect to share my knowledge with my students for them to appreciate their strengths and abilities. I am able to provide a stimulating environment that will support your goals, while providing a professional job. I am sure I can contribute my particular aptitudes to create and develop material, if this is necessary. I am passionate in working with students, teachers and administrators, and being a positive influence in their lives.

I secure proficiency and every accent like a native speaker. Not only that, but you will have the opportunity to understand any Spanish dialect. I have shared my experience with central Americans, south Americans and Spanish speakers. So do not hesitate to contact me, it is worth it as many letters from my students said.
