    I am so excited for this upcoming school year, and I cannot wait to meet each family! I hope you view me as a resource for your family as well as for your child.
    Learning a Language: 
    Learning a new language is not an easy thing; I know from experience! I learned Spanish through school, my internship, and my Spanish-speaking students. I understand the anxiety students can feel when speaking in specific situations. Throughout the school year, I want to build your student's confidence speaking, reading, writing, and listening in English.
    What to Expect: 
    In my class, students will be reading a book of their choice. I want students to be able to read books in English, but I also want my students to maintain fluency in their previously learned languages. I value my students' many languages, and I view that ability as a benefit to their future.
    Personal Info About Me:
    I grew up in the mountains of the Poconos in northern Pennsylvania. I went to West Chester University for my Bachelor's degree, and I went to Temple University for my ESL Certificate. I received my Master's of Education in Reading and Reading Specialist Cert. from Arcadia Unviersity, and I will be finishing my Master's of TESL from Temple University. I love to cook and experiment with new dishes; I never show up to a party empty handed! I also try to keep an active lifestyle.
    Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I also hope my growing Spanish fluency can help your family in any way. I look forward to working with you for the next couple years!
