Hello new and future Sprout students. My name is Arlen and I’m from San Diego, California. I’ve been with the Sprout team since February 2015 and have throughly enjoyed the experience teaching in a program that is highly dedicated in giving the students the best education in English.I obtained my Bachelors degree in Child and Adolescent studies in 2005. However, I’ve been working with elementary children since 2000. Currently I’m working in a elementary school program for Autistic children where I teach how to read, write and pronounce words accurately.
Working with Sprout has giving me the opportunity to become familiar with a wonderful culture I knew very little about. I give my students the opportunity to share stories about their vacations or what they did at school that week. In my classes, I like to use visuals such as pictures or videos so students can make a better connection with the stories we are reading about. I enjoying seeing my students having fun while learning correct sentence structure, good reading habits and new vocabulary. I hope I get to meet you soon !!!!!
