My current certifications are: Master Reading Teacher PreK - 12th grade, Elementary, Bilingual Spanish, and ESL.
I have recently retired after 22 years of teaching PreKindergarten, Kindergarten, First and Second Grade. I have taught around 500 young children to read, in English and in Spanish. I have significantly helped children improve their speech and comprehension, both native speakers of English who struggle to speak correctly, as well as native speakers of Spanish. I have a strong ability to improve their Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing, which are essential for success in all subjects. I am able to motivate reluctant learners, and give them a lifelong love of learning. Behavior management is also a strength of mine. My students have taken ownership of their own learning, and of their behavior and personal responsibility. My approach is positive, affirming and makes achieving specific goals fun.

I am a native speaker of English. I was very successful in English classes throughout my own schooling. I have a strong vocabulary. I am very experienced with modeling both everyday communication as well as academic use of English. I make correcting errors fun and empowering, so students are comfortable learning from their mistakes. I have many years of training in Language Acquisition techniques. I have a history of bringing about fast and significant improvement in my students' English Proficiency. I love literature, and have a passion to help students enjoy, understand and respond to what they read.

I have 15 years of experience teaching Bilingual classes, using Spanish and English for instruction. In this type of classroom, I have worked with children who struggle with English, struggle with Spanish or both. One of my strengths is in teaching Spanish Phonics. Children who speak Spanish begin reading the words they understand, and move from there to reading English, while building their vocabulary and comprehension verbally. For English speaking students, I am experienced with maste

Muy bueno

Teena knows her stuff. She demonstrated Spanish fluency and since she has Spanish as a second language knows the pitfalls to learning for a native English speaker. Very patient and willing to discuss your goals and design lesson plans to achieve them. I plan to be with Teena until I can become fluent.
