I have been a Title I Reading Teacher at Hostos for the last twenty years.  During this time, I have worked with students in all grade levels.  For the 2019 - 2020 school year, I am servicing students in grades 2, 5, and 6.  I am using the Benchmark intervention materials with a small group of students.  While fifth and sixth grade students are serviced within their own classroom during their ELA period(s), my second grade groups are pulled out so as to get more individualized instruction.

Besides being a Title I Reading Teacher, I am also the MicroBank and Finance Academy Facilitator.  I train students how to be the Chief Finance Officer for their Micro venture/agency.  They learn how to apply for a loan, establish a budget, take attendance, do payroll, pay taxes and loans, as well as keep track of all venture/agency income.  It takes a lot of organization and strong math skills to be a CFO.  At MicroBank, the students are responsible for cashing employee checks, keeping a record of both employee and venture/agency withdrawals and deposits, counting money, and collecting tax and loan payments.  This is the most visited business of MicroCity.

Another role that I have at Hostos is Test Coordinator.  I am in charge of scheduling, helping proctors during administration, and organizing the tests for administration.  This job, just like the other two, requires a lot of planning, organization, and patience.

Although I wear many different hats at Hostos, they are all done with one special thought in mind: the benefit of our students.  They are the reason I have stayed at Hostos for so many years.  I truly enjoy being part of their community.
