Former English as Second Language learner and now a teacher with a Master's and 4 years of experience.

Methodology

I learned that for one to get diversity, inclusion, and academic success I must have safeguarded classroom environment, consistent protocols and expectations, trauma informed-curriculum relevance, triangulation of data, and most importantly, proper social-emotional instruction. This has led me to use the academic spectrum and differentiation as some of the basis of my instruction, which has prompt me to advocate for all my students, so they do not fall through the trenches that prevent them to obtain the educational equity that they deserve.

Background

I am an Upper Elementary Computer Science teacher during the day time and an Evening English Teacher to returning High School dropouts who came back to obtain their high school diploma. This is also after having 3 years of classroom teaching and a Masters' degree under my belt.
