I have a great belief in education and am always learning myself. Currently I am attending Cal State Teach, an online teacher credential program, in order to earn a multiple subject credential and teach elementary school. I have worked at Cal State Fullerton assisting students with academic planning; also with community college students to ensure an efficient transfer with articulated lower division coursework completed. I was trained by Princeton review to teach test preparation for SAT; have taken and passed the CBEST, and multiple subject CSET. I have a master's degree in history and have extensive coursework in theatre arts.
I have taken and passed the CBEST test, one sitting, first time. The test is required in CA for all future teachers (K-12); it includes basic math, reading, and writing skills; essentially elementary level. The writing portion is two essay prompts designed to assess a person's ability to write effectively. The reading section consists of 50 multiple choice questions and is designed to assess analysis, evaluation, and comprehension. The math portion is also 50 multiple choice questions from three basic skills areas: estimation, measurement, and statistical principles; computation and problem solving; and numerical and graphic relationships.
I possess a 30 day substitute credential issued by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing; I am currently in a credential program to receive a multiple subject credential to teach elementary school. I spend 2-3 days a week working in a first grade classroom; I have also worked in both 2nd and 3rd grade. I have experience with lesson planning and school reading intervention programs.
