I teach social studies and science to beginner ESL students and reading and language arts to 6, 7, and 8th grade intermediate ESL students. In addition, I teach AVID Excel to English Learners to promote academic literacy skills and college readiness.
My purpose is to support my beginner and intermediate ESL students to develop linguistic, cognitive, and academic skills in a safe and nurturing environment. These skills will prepare them to handle challenging concepts when they move to mainstream classrooms.
My mission as an AVID Excel teacher is to get my students ready to participate in High School AVID. The AVID program in High School will help students to acquire financial aid, to fill out applications to the colleges of their choice, to prepare for interviews, etc.
