Woodcreek High School, Roseville Joint Union High SD
ELD & English Teacher
Roseville, CA
I began my teaching career as a ParaEducator in Special Education, where I had an opportunity to work with several English Language Learners. They inspired me and we built a special connection. This led me to pursue a teaching credential in English with a TESOL Certificate. I have taught ELL in multiple settings - Adult ESL , home instruction, middle and high school ELD and CP English. I really enjoy the diversity of life experiences and cultures that my students bring to my classroom. They often teach me as much or more than I teach them. As a teacher of 25 years, I can attest that it doesn’t get better than that!
