Mr. Guerra, ESL Teacher
Hi, everyone! My name is Nelson Guerra, and I am a proud English learner teacher. Welcome to the 2019 - 2020 academic school year! 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. I had the opportunity to teach 8th grade U.S. History and 12th grade U.S. Government for my student teaching assignments 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 that teaching language arts is my passion. I left Driscoll and started my tenure as one of Lopez's English learner teachers and co-coordinators of the English Learner Department (EL Department). I am currently working on a masters degree program in Educational Administration. I strongly believe in growing as an educator, so I have taught summer school at the elementary level two years in a row. I have learned so much from those experiences. 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.
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.
