Hello. My name is Amador Alvarez, Jr. I have been an ESL teacher for 30 years, 21 of them here at Wiggs. I teach 7th and 8th grade levels II and III English and Reading. I also teach 8th grade ALD and 7th grade Social Studies CL. Students are expected to maintain an idiom book, vocabulary notebook, Reading folder and Writing folder. They must follow the classroom rules as well as the school rules (dress code- uniform). Students will be taught lessons and assessed on Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing skills.
Students who assist the teacher with daily chores will be rewarded with "stars" and they can exchange those stars for school supplies.
Education: UTEP 1979 Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice; 1983 Secondary Teaching Certificate in Political Science and Sociology; 1986 ESL Endorsement
I am a member of the LPAC committee that places all LEP students in the appropriate language levels. We also place them accordingly in the STAAR test appropriate for them.
