Hello everyone. My name is Tina. I live in Baltimore, Maryland. I currently teach kindergarten in a Baltimore City Public School. I am in my third year of teaching. The school I am currently employed at has a high ESOL population. The diversity is wonderful and learning is never ending. Teaching has always been my passion. I enjoy observing the students soak up the knowledge I am delivering and having them in turn utilize the information to solve problems. I believe that a teacher needs a multitude of tools to reach each student at their academic level in order for the student to be successful. My long term goal is to have an early learning center. I understand that I need to continue to increase my knowledge in the educational field and I know that monitoring my goals and re-evaluating my progress will be ongoing. I enjoy reading, drawing and traveling. I am a good listener and open to new ideas.
