I am graduating in Special Education with a concentration as Educational Diagnostician from the University of Houston, Victoria in the summer of 2017.
Instead of working full time in a school, I am looking forward to work as an independent contractor as an educational diagnostician.
This way I can pursue all those activities that I am passionate about.

Certifications

Teacher = Elementary through Grade Six
Feb 2015
Texas Education Agency

Engish As Second Language
Jan 2015
Texas Education Agency

This certification is for teaching English to students whose first language is not English; for example children of Indian parents born and brought up in America are very familiar with the English Language. However, it is not the same when English is the first language of parents as well, that means they have all their interactions only in the English language. Since the curriculum of the US is geared towards texts created by authors with their first language being English, it does become difficult to be able to grasp the text in its entirety. ESL classrooms provide scope for slowly and steadily being able to grasp the English Language as well as students whose first language is English. The classroom provides for many more activities that help this transition.

I had a great first lesson experience with Nargis. I walked away feeling our lesson was so productive already. My dad (a native Hindi speaker) was even impressed with what I learned on the first day. I'm excited to keep learning with her.
