Who was your favorite teacher in Elementary School and Why? 

My favorite teacher in Elementary school was Mrs. Benavides because she was very passionate, patient, respectful and creative. She was very dedicated to her work and was always aware of her students´ needs.

What is your favorite thing about teaching? 

My favorite thing about teaching is being flexible to adapt to new school environments. I can adapt myself easily to new teaching techniques. Learning is a constant process so I am always open to new ideas.

What is your favorite subject to teach and why?   

My favorite subject to teach is Social Studies because it is a great opportunity to integrate a content subject with English language development by developing language skills such as speaking, listening, reading and writing. I like to promote interaction among students so they can have spaces to think, reflect, share and plan to solve problems.
