Currently, I work as an academic intervention teacher for a public school district here in the Inland Empire. Also this will be my 6th year of teaching for elementary school students, up to this school year 2014-2015.

In my recent past, I have worked as an elementary teacher for a public school district in Whittier, for grades Kindergarten through 5th grade students. Although my work location was far, I have & still continue to commute for tutoring during Fridays -Sundays throughout the San Gabriel Valley & San Fernando Valley areas, as well as some parts of the greater Los Angeles areas to offer tutoring. Meanwhile, I also simultaneously work as a full-time elementary school district teacher each weekday from Monday-Friday.

I teach multiple subjects, working in a classroom-type setting. In my position, I offer K-5th grade academic instruction of the CA standards, remediation to intervention, ELD (English-language development) instruction to K-5th grade level skills and elementary speech-language instruction. I try to target academic weaknesses, teach required & advanced skills necessary in today's schools, improve abilities through tutoring, maintain required grade level and CA school standards skills, as well as provide advancement in various academic skills that a student can excel higher in past their grade level.

Other experiences in my recent past include teaching full-time as a kindergarten teacher for a city school district, teaching in an after-school setting to 1st and 2nd grade students, teaching in combination multi-grade level classrooms ranging from kindergarten through 5th grade in the same classroom, teaching math & English-language arts intervention for remediation and grade level catch up skills, and last, providing elementary speech remediation through oral language and phonics, with rote oral exercises.

I have taught all elementary school subjects providing for individual and group academic intervention, and daily enrichment. I have also helped at-risk and struggling students improve in their school's state assessments. In addition, I have also had experienced professional training in techniques & strategies using a Reading Mastery Program to improve and help students excel in reading from Grades 1st-5th grade.

I started out as a young college student majoring in Psychology, then rose to gain experience with children at a local summer camp. Then, I became a volunteer working as an academic mentor while still in college, for at-risk foster students in the inner city communities of the San Fernando Valley. Next, I began my role as school facilitator working as a teacher's assistant/paraprofessional for a few years at two local public schools in Los Angeles, while simultaneously attending & juggling University courses daily & nightly to earn my degree in education with a CA professional credential license. For a total of 10 years now, my teaching history has started out from just a regular basic academic mentor, to teacher's assistant, to full-time classroom teacher, to professional educator multi-tasking employment in other advanced educational & professional positions. I coach, support, mentor, and most importantly, advise in teaching and facilitating quality academic instruction to all types of diverse learners.

During the summer, I currently work seasonally as a language test examiner for a local school district in Los Angeles. Here I proctor the CELDT (California English Language Development Test) to our designated English-Language Students at various district school sites.

My greatest experience has been as a third grade teacher for two years in a public elementary school district. One of my major experiences include being involved in carrying out a standards based instructional program dedicated to improving student achievement for students. A few of my experiences there include teaching through an intervention three-tier program called RTI (Response to Intervention) that guides low-performing students to meet grade level standards, and being fully active in school-wide action planning/professional development to analyze student data results and facilitate school curriculum needs for student growth in the classroom.

I have also been fully trained in teaching differentiated instructional methods, using explicit direct instruction (EDI) techniques used today in many schools, and trained to teach systematic writing strategies for struggling writers.

I am fully credentialed with my CA professional clear credential in multiple subjects. Also, I have a strong background in literacy & reading development for grades kindergarten through 5th grade. In addition, I also carry areas of strength in English Language Development and Science for grades K-5th grade.

I can also offer and provide beginning elementary ESL instruction for students in 2nd-7th grade (elementary grades), focusing on the following areas: beginning to advanced English writing, reading and vocabulary, oral language and speech, grammar and phonics. My instruction composes of both oral conversation and written instruction. I am quite flexible to tailor and adapt curriculum based on a student's strengths and weaknesses.

Through all of my varied teaching experiences in my life, it is my duty to target any student's needs, seek and work on improvement and/or intervention, and teach the student to learn basic, required, and advanced skills necessary for each grade level to excel in the student's school curriculum.
