My name is Rosanna Miiller Salas. I am an Elementary teacher from Venezuela. Seven years ago I moved to Denver, Colorado where I live with my husband and my two little daughters (3 and 5 years old).

In 1998 I graduated with honors from the Universidad Católica Andrés Bello in Caracas and completed graduate studies in Learning Processes at the same university in 2008. Since 1999 I have worked at various educational levels while teaching in private and public schools in Caracas. In 2010 I joined Denver Public Schools where I have worked during three years as an ELA and Spanish Teacher. Currently I am a graduate student at University of Colorado Denver at MA, Information and Learning Technologies with emphasis on eLearning and Implementation. In the Summer of 2014 I began working as a Graduate Tech Assistant at CU Denver helping faculty members of SEHD developing their online Canvas courses.

My teacher background is a combined experience between my classroom experience and my professional studies. I had experience working with both formal and informal education. During my professional training I learned about curriculum design, uses of technology in educational campus, effective motivational strategies, connect with diverse population groups, Identify student’s individual and collective educational needs, develop and implement enrichment programs for advanced students and remedial programs for students requiring extra assistance.

My goal is to successfully complete this program and find a job related with my interest (developing bilingual Spanish/English courses, materials, and resources) where I can apply the knowledge acquired during this learning process. I interested in instructional design, eLearning, bilingual education, educational communities around the word, bringing simple technology into schools, effectives foreign languages strategies, and design and development bilingual educational resources.
