Career Goal
My long-term goal is to become a California credentialed teacher and teach at the elementary level in
California public schools. I am currently enrolled in the Teacher Preparation Program at Dominican University.
The university anticipates recommending me for my credential in May 2016.
Recent Experience
I am just coming to the end of my student teaching experience at Sun Valley Elementary School in San Rafael.
This is a rigorous elementary school, nominated for the 2016 National Blue Ribbon award for its overall
academic excellence. The school has just begun to implement the Sobrato Early Academic Language (SEAL)
program in grades K-3. I have been fortunate to attend the teacher training days and have chosen to base my
teaching around this innovative and supportive model which aims to close the achievement gap between EL
students and their native English speaking peers by 4th grade. The program places a strong emphasis on explicit
teaching and practice of oral academic language through peer to peer conversations, kinesthetic learning and
the integration of language and literacy development across the curriculum.

English Language Teacher in French Elementary School, Cluses, France
October 1989 June 1990
- I chose to spend a year teaching English Language to French Elementary School students
- Sole responsibility for creating lesson plans, disciplining and teaching hour long classes of approximately
fifteen 4th and 5th Grade students. The students were required to attend classes but were not graded.

Position was split between two local Elementary schools. Each drew from a very different socio-economic
background. One school was entirely composed of native French speakers, the other of non-native French
speakers. I became very experienced in the need to adjust my lessons and expectations based on my
