I have taught ESL ( English as a Second Language) and Spanish for several years and at all different levels, from Kindergarten to adult education. I have worked with Teacher Academy conducting staff development for teachers. I have taught Spanish classes at the community college and I was also selected as the N.C. TOY in 2005. However, teaching ESL is my passion because I have been an ESL student myself, and I know what it feels like to enter a High School where no one speaks your language and you don't speak theirs. I love helping my students develop their second language skills and seeing them become bilingual.
