Mr. Guerra, ESL Teacher
Hello, everyone! Welcome to the 2019 - 2020 academic school year! My name is Nelson Guerra, and I am an English learner teacher. I am thrilled to begin my eleventh year as an educator and seventh year at Lopez! Go Panthers! I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Our Lady of the Lake University in 2008. At OLLU, I also completed the traditional teacher certification program. Because of this great program, I had the opportunity of visiting numerous campuses throughout San Antonio when completing my clock-hours of field-based experiences. For my clinical teaching assignments, I taught 8th grade U.S. History and 12th grade U.S. Government in SAISD. After graduation, I was hired to teach social studies to 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at the School of Science and Technology - Alamo Campus. After that enriching experience, I joined NEISD to teach 7th grade English language arts at Clara Driscoll Middle School. This experience made me realize how much I love teaching language arts. I left Driscoll to become one of Lopez's English learner teachers and co-coordinators of the English Learner Department (EL Department). Teaching language arts to English learners has become my passion. I am currently working on a masters degree program in Educational Administration. I am a certified teacher in the areas of Generalist EC-6, Generalist 4-8, Social Studies 8-12, Bilingual EC-12, and ESL EC-12. I strongly believe in growing as an educator, so when I get a chance, I teach summer school at the elementary level. I enjoy every minute of it!
My mission is to prepare all English learners for high school by providing them a safe learning environment while using the most up-to-date research in second language acquisition.
