Welcome back to the Kinder Dual Language classroom.
Hello! This is Mr. Alfredo Estrada.
Zavala will continue implementing a dual language program on campus as part of a District school wide initiative. Dual language has been in the District for several years and is now being utilized on all campuses. Hooray! It has been researched as the best form of education for teaching bilingual students nationwide. This year it will be implemented in 2nd grade and added subsequently each year to the other grade levels.
I am a graduate of the University of Texas at El Paso, receiving my Bachelors of Science Degree in Liberal Arts. I subsequently attended the University of Texas at Arlington and California State University at Los Angeles, taking graduate courses in Administration. I returned to UTEP to receive my initial teaching certification in Bilingual/ESL Education. Currently, I hold Certifications in PK-6 Bilingual/ESL, 6-8 Bilingual Supplemental, EC-4 Generalist, and Secondary Health Education. This is my 24th year as a teacher of record.
I am available to meet with you during the school week during my conference period at 1:00-1:45 pm daily. Welcome once again to the Zavala community!
