Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught reading to small groups for K-5th grade. I'm certified for ESL K-12, so I have done language arts including English, phonics, and reading comprehension at the elementary level. Comprehension is so important for the student to have success in all the other subjects.

English

I have taught English as a Second Language for more than 20 years. This includes using the core subjects of English, science, history and some math as subjects are interrelated and have connections.

ESL/ESOL

I have the English as a Second Language Certification from the PA Dept. of Education and 20+ years of teaching ESL. K-adults. This involves students learning receptive skills of listening and reading along with productive skills of speaking and writing. I enjoy learning from and conversing with the students' about their cultures as they practice speaking skills.

Grammar

I have taught Spanish and English as a Second Language for more than 20 years. To learn another language it is important to know grammar in the native language. Also one learns more about their native language as they learn a new target language.

Phonics

I have taught reading in elementary schools for many years. This included phonics. I have also taught ESL with phonic components.

Reading

I have more than 20 years experience teaching ESL and Spanish. Reading is a core component for any subject. Without reading comprehension any subject could be difficult to understand. The strategies used for becoming a better reader can then be applied to various subjects for more success.

Spanish

I have been interested in Spanish since I was in middle school. When in college, I lived in Spain for a semester and did a lot of traveling. Spanish is spoken in so many countries in the world that it is important for business and traveling. Learning another language can help one with vocabulary and grammar in the native language.

Writing

Writng is very fundamental for all subjects including descriptions and responses for math problems. The schools strive to have more writing skills so the students can succeed
on PSSA and other tests. This skill carries over into college and beyond in business.
