|Position:||1st Grade Dual Language Teacher|
My Education and Professional Background
A little background on me, I grew up in the Bay Area of California where I attended a dual immersion school. I am bilingual in English and Spanish. After high school I moved to Tucson where I attended the University of Arizona. I graduated with my B.A. in Spanish translation and interpretation. I then received my post-baccalaurette teaching certificate from Pima Community College. Also, I was just married in July and my new last name is Graves. However, my email will remain as Long until everything is updated in the system.
My Educational Philosophy
I am so excited to play a part in your child's journey to bi-literacy. Being bilingual is one of the greatest gifts I have been given, and I am incredibly passionate about helping my students achieve the same! Additionally, I believe that every child has the ability to succeed and grow. Not all children grow at the same time, the same rate, or in the same way. I make every intention to meet each child where they are at. I also integrate social emotional learning whenever I can as I believe teaching these skills is extremely important to be well rounded. I am excited to help your child succeed!
