Reading Intervention IA

Teacher Rosaura - Nautilus Room

rosauragarcia@oasischarterschool.org

My name is Rosaura Garcia. I was born in Mexicali, Baja California. I love to read, ride bikes, and this summer, I learned how to ride scooters! I am married and have a daughter here at Oasis. What I like the most about being at Oasis is to be with children and learn with them as well. In 1995 I got my B.A in Psychology at the University Autonomous of Baja California. As psychologist I worked in private practice with teenagers and adults for about 10 years, and as teacher for the Office of Education Affairs in Mexico (SEP). I came to the United States in February of 2005, and that year I started learning English at Salinas Adult School. The following year I was taking classes at Hartnell College! Now, I have accomplished my goal of speaking English as my second language (still learning!) and receiving my foreign education equivalency. I'm looking forward to having a Masters Degree. Happy to be here! 

Me llamo Rosaura García. Nací en Mexicali, Baja California. Me encanta leer, montar motos, y este verano, aprendí a montar scooters! Estoy casado y tengo una hija aquí en Oasis. Lo que más me gusta de estar en Oasis es estar con niños y aprender con ellos también. En 1995 obtuve mi Licenciatura en Psicología en la Universidad Autónoma de Baja California. Como psicólogo trabajé en la práctica privada con adolescentes y adultos durante unos 10 años, y como profesor de la Oficina de Asuntos Educativos en México (SEP). Vine a los Estados Unidos en febrero de 2005, y ese año comencé a aprender inglés en la Escuela de Adultos Salinas. ¡El año siguiente estaba tomando clases en Hartnell College! Ahora, he logrado mi objetivo de hablar inglés como mi segundo idioma (¡todavía estoy aprendiendo!) Y recibir mi equivalencia de educación extranjera. Estoy deseando tener una Maestría. ¡Feliz de estar aqui!

 

English Language Development

Lisa Algee

My name is Lisa and this is my first year teaching ELD (English Language Development) here at Oasis.  I've taught for 20 years here in the Central Valley at the Elementary and College level.  I prefer the Elementary level because students tap into their imaginations more and think 'outside the box' to explore new and inventive ways of solving problems and issues.  My vision as an educator is to utilize children's natural talents to develop their English language proficiency in a fun and exciting way (using Science and Social issues as backdrops).  I have a passion for Environmental Education, Social Justice, and Animal Advocacy.  Come visit me in the Puffer fish room.  Aloha, Lisa :-)
