Degrees and Certifications:
I started as a Bilingual Liaison (instructional assistant) for ESL students in the fall of 2017 for various Caldwell County schools. After years of being called "profe" by the students that I assisted, I went back to get my Masters in teaching from UNC Charlotte and began teaching during the 2020-2021 school year. With that, I started my first year teaching at Gamewell Middle with two other locations and hoped to continue working diligently with my students and for our Gamewell community.
Favorite Educational Quote and Why
Nelson Mandela once said that "without language, one cannot talk to people and understand them; one cannot share their hopes and aspirations, grasp their history, appreciate their poetry, or savour their songs." As a language teacher for those learning English as their additional language, I focus on guiding my students through their language excursion to proficiency. There are endless possibilities with learning an additional language.
Why I Became An Educator
"Profe" is a Spanish term of endearment in referring to a teacher. While I was an assistant, many ESL students called me by that term when I was not officially a "teacher." I became a teacher to meet the expectations of those students who once called me what I am now..."Profe" (teacher).
Favorite Place In Caldwell County
My favorite Caldwell spot is my home.
I enjoy spending time with my family watching movies and sporting events.
Como aprendiz de ingles, he pasado la mayor parte de mi vida aprendiendo y dominando mi segundo idioma. Es decir, el inglés es mi segundo y mi idioma primario. Como maestro de inglés como segundo idioma (ESL), mi objetivo es alentar a mis estudiantes a ganar confianza con su idioma adicional, a perseguir logros académicos y a esforzarse a la excelencia. Comencé a trabajar con el Sistema de Colegios del Condado de Caldwell en el otoño del 2017 como un Coordinador Bilingüe. Hoy, 2020, me embarco como maestro de primer año en mi búsqueda de la grandeza para todos mis alumnos/as. A medida que continuemos aprendiendo este idioma, seré el guía turístico de mis estudiantes mientras maniobramos a través de esta experiencia lingüística.
