Why Whitewater?


From all places in the United States, Whitewater feels more like home. I grew up in Quito- Ecuador, a small country with small cities. Too much traffic and too many people can sometimes make me feel overwhelmed. Whitewater is a small community where education is everyone's priority. I am proud to say that I teach in one of the best school districts in Wisconsin. What makes it one of the best? My colleagues. They are always motivated to teach and that makes students be motivated to learn.

My name is Sandra Ramirez and I teach English as a Second Language. This is my fifth year at Washington Elementary and I am very excited to be part of it!

I am originally from Ecuador so Spanish is my first language, as is for most students I work with. I enjoy working with ELLs (English Language Learners) because they remind me about myself.

For the most part I work with students outside of their regular education classrooms. I help them acquire the English skills needed to be able to succeed academically. In addition, I also like to work with parents because their involvement in school has shown to have a positive impact in student performance.

Me llamo Sandra Ramirez y soy maestra de Ingles como Segundo Idioma. Es mi quinto año en la Escuela  Washington y estoy muy emocionada de ser parte de ella!

Soy originaria de Ecuador y el español es mi primer idioma tal como lo es para la mayoría de mis estudiantes. Disfruto mucho al trabajar con estudiantes que aprenden el Ingles pues me recuerdan a mi misma.

Mi trabajo con los estudiantes es usualmente fuera de sus clases regulares. Les ayudo a adquirir las destezas del idioma Ingles que les permitira tener exito academico. Además me gusta mucho trabajar con padres pues se ha visto que su involucramiento en la escuela tiene un impacto positivo en la producción académica de sus hijos.
