I have a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction K-12 as well as AZ teaching certificates in Elementary Education and Adult Education. I have taken coursework on the methods of teaching English/Language Arts. I have taught English to Elementary age students and I have taught English in Adult Basic Education classes.
I possess a Reading Specialist endorsement on my Arizona Teaching Certificate. Part of my coursework to qualify for this endorsement was strategies for teaching phonics. I have had additional training with the 95 Percent Group which is an educational consulting and professional development company which produces diagnostic screeners and materials for teaching phonics.
I have a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction K-12. During my training, study skills was an area touched upon because all students, especially the older ones, need this ability. I worked 2 years in Adult Basic Education in which I assisted students in enhancing their skill base, including study skills, to prepare to take the GED.
