Be true to myself and don't be someone I am not. That is my recipe for success with kids.
I work in a high school as an Instructional Assistant in Special Education and have worked with students with mild to severe disabilities for four years. I look at each child separately and get to know them for who they are. I don't see the disability, I see the child. I teach the student and not the disability. We end up talking about things in between the lessons, the conversations become lessons.
When I teach I give the students clues, i.e. as to how to remember vocabulary words. I try to make the clues something they can relate to in their own life, so the word becomes interesting to them and not just something they have to learn. That is my approach with all the subjects I teach. If the student can personalize the lesson then they will absorb the information. I make it fun. I ask them how they feel about what they are learning. Everyone wants to be heard.
I draw my techniques from my own life experiences. I remember being a shy child, a rebellious teen, and a contemplative college student. I'm a divorced mother (11 years) with two children ages 21 and 17. I understand the challenges children face in their home lives.
I have an eclectic work and educational background that includes managing the New York showroom for a small private label sportswear manufacturer in New York City to teaching fitness and yoga to obtaining a paralegal certification from UCLA. I became a Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance after intensive yoga Teacher Training. This training coupled with my Bachelor's Degree in English and Psychology offers parents and students a fresh approach to helping both articulate their mutual goals and concerns.
My own passion for writing has taken shape in the form of newsletters to former yoga students, freelance journalism for two online news platforms, and currently I am publishing a book of original aphorisms to be followed by a book of poetry through Xlibris Publishing.
I find that when I share who I am with my students they become receptive and seek me out for help. They want to learn because they know I am vested in their success. They know I care. They know I like them. They know they can be themselves with me. We become a team.
The physical yoga practices and meditation techniques are integrated with an understanding of yoga philosophy to stimulate inner growth, relaxation, a healthy lifestyle, and an overall sense of well-being. Students work privately at their own pace to maximize results. Specialty teens. May include the use of weights for increased body toning.
