I am a kid at heart, with a tremendous amount of patience!
I am an ESL PreK teacher and I absolutely love my students and my job! I get to play and learn everyday. I have been teaching for 16 years. My experiences in teaching also include coaching soccer and other sports, from ages 4-16 years of age.
Having grown up as an ESL student, I can relate with ESL learners. I have experienced the struggles that come with learning the English language - from being scared, feeling lost and not knowing how to speak and communicate with others. Having been in your shoes will guide me to better help you and make you feel comfortable in learning and speaking the English language.
Not only are my students ESL, their parents are also ESL learners with very limited English. One of my strengths is being able to help my parents feel comfortable in communicating with me because I make them feel valued and important, regardless of their limited English. My weekly newsletters that parents receive regarding what their children are learning in my class are ESL appropriate because I develop them based on their needs - with lots of visual guides.
Let me help you feel confident in learning to speak English fluently. I look forward to helping you learn in a fun and enjoyable way.
