Fabiola Torres joins the program from Dallas, TX. Fabiola studied Business Administration and received her degree from UNT Dallas. She will be teaching in an elementary classroom focusing on bilingual education. Prior to this year, Fabiola has served in a number of roles at her alma mater. She assisted in the special education classrooms which inspired her to pursue a career as a classroom teacher. During this year, her goal is to find out more about the various roles a teacher plays. Fabiola wants her teacher mentor to know that she enjoys working with small groups, and is a little nervous to whole group activities and instruction. Her favorite teacher growing up was Mr. Tangona; she remembers him going the extra mile to support students and make them feel welcome. He used models and examples to better assist students’ understanding of classroom material. While she is not teaching, Fabiola is passionate about makeup, hair and photography.
