I have worked with students from grades Kindergarten through 12th grade as a substitute teacher for both monolingual and bilingual students. My experiences as a substitute have allowed me the opportunity to interact with diverse student populations and engage them in learning. I also taught as an afterschool program teacher. It has given me sufficient experience in teaching as well as classroom management. While teaching in the Alief ISD after school program, I created and customized lesson plans. I also taught GED, ESL, and Spanish for the district's adult literacy program. As a student with Texas Teachers, I created lesson plans that engaged all learners by applying a variety of teaching methods. I strive to ensure that every student achieves excellence. In addition to this, I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology with a minor in Latin American Studies from the University of Kansas.

I motivated students to not only learn but also build and improve on the four basic language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. I designed instruction, materials, and created lesson plans aimed to teach Spanish grammar, conversation, and vocabulary as well as geography and cultural traditions. I differentiated instruction for native speakers of Spanish and beginners within the same classroom.

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.

I have passed the teacher certification LOTE ex-12 that school district require to pass in order to teach Spanish.
