THIS WEEK'S HOMEWORK:
I was born and raised in Philadelphia many moons ago! Growing up, I went to a bilingual elementary public school where I learned how to read, write, and speak in both English and Spanish. For middle school and high school, I attended Catholic schools. My high school alma mater is Little Flower High School for Girls.
My father was a teacher and he inspired me to be one too. I loved learning and wanted to share this love of learning with others. It is my daily motivation!
I graduated from Temple University with a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. In my career, I have worked many years for the Philadelphia public schools, one year at a cyber school, and even homeschooled my own children.
This past May, I graduated with a Master's degree from Holy Family University where I studied English as a Second Language (ESL) to become certified by the state in order to help students whose first language is not English. Just a few weeks ago, I also became certified to teach Spanish in grades K-12.
It's going to be an exciting year of learning! I can feel it!
