Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Barbara Cantu
I have taught elementary school for almost twenty years. I majored in Special Education and General Education so I graduated with a double major. I also have an ESL (English as a second language) certification as well as a EC(early childhood) certification.Two and a half years ago I decided to give myself a challenge. In one word.....PRE-K! I had taught Pre-K teachers for 10 years but I wasn't ever in the classroom so it really was an adventure! I believe that these very young children , if exposed to quality education, go into older grades more prepared , fearless and become problem solvers. Having all day Pre-K classes are a new concept and a gift for Title I students as well as for other students. Experts in Early childhood (teachers) realize that children grow at different times so we may send kids to Kindergarten reading or with a reading readiness background. It is all good and that is the beauty of teaching Pre-K.
