Welcome to my E-Portfolio

My name is Paola Dalmonech. I was born and raised in Italy until I decided to come to New York to learn English. After a year, I applied to CUNY University, and here I am. LaGuardia Community College is a great experience to me. I am enrolled in Childhood Education and I currently have 50 credits. Being an International student is not so easy especially because I am the only one who lives in the U.S. among all my family and relatives. However, I feel comfortable and extremely happy to be in this school.

This semester I began my second internship at P.S.51, which is an Elementary School located in Manhattan. I am observing a fifth grade class. I think it is going to be very interesting because the teacher seems to be very talented. In addition, I am very excited to study and observe the educational system of this country because I can compare it with my personal school experience back in Italy.

Since I was in High School, I’ve always been surrounded by young learners. After the first year I spent in New York, I went back to my hometown where I had the opportunity to work for a couple of months as a substitute English teacher in an elementary school. It was a marvelous experience; that is the reason why I came back to America to study Childhood Education. Here at LaGuardia, I have been working as an Italian Tutor for the ELA Department for three semesters already. I strongly believe that  this type of job is fascinating and truly rewarding. I am very excited in studying Education and I hope my dream of teaching English in Italy will soon become true. In the following pages you will find my resume, my educational philosophy and seminar.
