Introduction
I am a two-way dual-language bilingual immersion educator. I currently work in a blended learning lab at Nimitz Ninth Grade School in Aldine ISD in Houston, Texas. Recently, I was a 6th grade bilingual Social Studies (World Cultures) teacher at the New Caney Sixth Grade Campus in New Caney, Texas. Previously, I was an educator of bilingual students at Splendora Junior High School and Splendora High School in Splendora, Texas. I also speak to teachers, students, parents, and administrators about biliteracy and its importance in educating 21st century learners.
