Su di me

****Temporarily unavailable. *** I will return on May 28, 2018.
Hello, I am passionate about teaching and am looking forward to having you as a student. I have taught students in pre-school, elementary school, middle school, and high school. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English from Milligan College. My areas of expertise are special education and ESL. I am currently pursuing a Master's in special education with course work in ESL instruction.
My teaching style: I always teach from the perspective of my students.
My approach to language learning: I use TPR (Total Physical Response), an evidenced-based language-learning strategy along with differentiated instruction and specially designed instruction enhanced by visuals as well as the teaching and learning framework Universal Design for Learning (UDL) that incorporates individual learning styles as well as Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences.
