Profissão: I'm currently retired and volunteer as a tutor for students in my city for reading and English practice.
Experiência de ensino: I taught first grade for two years before beginning an ESL career which led me to teach Kindergarten through 5th graders and high school students for 18 years. I have a reading specialist endorsement, so for 8 years I was the reading and writing teacher for 14-18 year olds just moving to the United States with no, or very little, English.
Interesses: I taught English to speakers of other languages for 18 years and my students taught me more than I could ever learn in a book! I love engaging with people from other countries and cultures. I also like to travel to other countries to offer humanitarian aid and have been able to teach and train teachers oversees.
I live in beautiful Colorado and enjoy hiking and skiing with friends.
Educação: I have a Masters degree in Early Childhood Education with an ESL endorsement for Kindergarten through 12th grades in the United States. I also have a TEFL certificate.
Idiomas falados: inglês (Nativo), espanhol (Básico)
