Welcome to my Homepage.
My name is Barbara Lima and I am a teacher on special assignment as a teacher/trainer at the Dade-Monroe Teacher Education Center. As a classroom teacher I taught 11th. grade Language Arts and Advanced American History as well as Government & Economics and African/Asian History at Miami Southridge Senior High School.
Currently I teach ESOL Issues and Strategies, Applied Linguistics , Cross Cultural Communication, and Understanding the Hispanic Culture to Promote Student Achievement as well as Classroom Management: Planning and Preparation, Effective Management Strategies, Clinical Supervision for Educators and Interactive Teaching Strategies. I am very interested in meeting with other staff developers who are interested in these topics.
While it is usually hot and often very hot in Miami with the temperature reaching the high 90°s, there is usually a beautiful breeze coming in off the ocean. Furthermore, we have wonderfully mild winters.
