Hi! My name is Angelica Chavez. I am an ESOL Teacher at Midland Park Primary. This is my 5th year teaching and 4th year with the ESOL team. I graduated from R.B. Stall High School and Charleston Southern University with a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. My parents immigrated to the United States from Mexico in search of the “American Dream”. As a bilingual Mexican American student, I experienced the challenges that multilingual learners face. Being a role model for these students will inspire them to pursue their own dreams. I strive to impact them positively every day to motivate them to learn, to encourage them to be persistent when facing new challenges and to reward every achievement big or small. They are the future after all!
