English As a Second Language
I am excited to serve as your teacher. Learning a new language is rewarding in many ways. So bring your curiosities, your cultures, your dreams, and your fears. Together we will have a rich experience!
My Classroom Mission
Our mission in ESL is to improve provide lessons that will improve the students' speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills in order for them to be successful academically and socially.
Cape Verde Islands is my native country. As a Capeverdean I am already bilingual. We speak Portuguese and Criolo (a dialet of Portugues and Swahili). I began learning English at the age of 14 and had French as minor in College. My teaching career began as an elementary school teacher in California where I had the pleasure of working with students of various cultural and language backgrounds. I spent the last 7 years as a substitute teacher for Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools while raising my family. I enjoy reading, traveling, cooking, gardening, and spending time outdoors with my family.
