I currently hold a teaching license for Grades 1-6 in New York and K-5 in California. I have a Masters of Arts in Teaching (with a focus on Elementary and Bilingual Education). I have 4 years of teaching experience in New York City.
With experience as a teacher in a bilingual Spanish classroom (in both grades 2 and 3), I have encountered students new to this country with varying levels of literacy skills. Therefore, I have ample experience teaching phonics in both English and Spanish through centers, guided reading and word study. For students with little or no literacy skills in their native language of Spanish, I began with phonics in Spanish. For students who had a foundation in Spanish, I taught them English phonics.
