Hello!

My name is Jenny, and I hope I can be of help to you and/or your child in an area you feel needs support. I am a recent graduate of UCSD's Graduate Education Studies Program (September 2011) from which I received a Master of Education degree and Preliminary Teaching Credential in Multiple Subjects. I also hold a BA in Psychology from the same institution. Being a recent graduate, I am equipped with up-to-date research-based teaching practices and am knowledgeable in the current California and National standards. I have student taught in grades Kinder, 2nd, 4th, and 5th, and have volunteered as a Reading Tutor and Reader for grades K-3 within the San Diego Unified School District. I have experience substitute teaching all grade levels between pre-k through 8th grade and have also worked in Critical Skills and Special Day classrooms, so have the patience and genuine desire to work with children of all ages and backgrounds.

My specialties in teaching have been modifying lessons in all core subject areas to meet the needs of each child in the classroom and challenging students to think outside the box. Therefore, you can be rest assured that I will adapt lessons that will engage your child and meet his/her needs and interests while challenging your child in the realm of accessibility. I have also been a Teaching Assistant for eight years at an after-school enrichment program where I worked one-on-one with students from pre-k through high school, so I understand what it takes to keep students motivated and on task.

I hope to work with you soon and help you and/or your child reach the success that you wish to reach!

Respectfully,

Jenny N.

CBEST

In July and November, 2009, I passed the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET) in Multiple Subjects and Writing Skills, which satisfies all components of the state basic skills requirement and is equivalent to the passage of CBEST.

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently hold a CA Preliminary Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and Master of Education from University of California, San Diego (UCSD, Sept., 2011).

In my studies, I served as a Student-Teacher in the elementary school system for grades 2 and 5 where I had received professional preparation in diversified teaching settings. I am equipped with innovative instructional practices for students of all elementary grades (K-6) and am knowledgeable of pedagogical methods in the subject areas of mathematics, science, social studies, language arts, English language development, physical education, health education, and fine arts with emphasis on inquiry techniques of instruction.

I have studied and practiced equitable educational research and practices that have attempted to enable all students to achieve to the best of their abilities. I am prepared and experienced in teaching English language learners and students with special needs. I am educated in current literature on effective applications of technology in the classroom and have had experience in the use of productivity tools, presentation software, and web development for teaching and learning.

ESL/ESOL

As partial fulfillment for my Master of Education degree and Teaching Credential, I completed and passed (grade of A) the course of Teaching the English Language Learner. Throughout the course, I examined the principles of second language acquisition and approaches to bilingual education. I developed a repertoire of strategies (SDAIE, GLAD, etc.) for teaching English language learners in elementary content areas.

As a Student-Teacher, I worked in elementary schools with high ELL populations, which gave me many opportunities to modify lessons and arrange partner and group work that best support ELLs. I compiled two individual student profiles focusing on two ELLs in the classroom and performed running records, Learning record, and interviews with them and their parents.

Phonics

I have taken and passed the Reading Instruction Competence Assessment (RICA, April, 2011), which measures the knowledge and skills of pre-service teachers for effective reading instruction to students. Within the exam's content specifications, the domain that is most heavily weighed upon is Word Analysis, which contains the realm of phonics.

Additionally, for the past eight years, I have been a teaching assistant in the reading department at Kumon Math and Reading Center. I work one-on-one with beginner readers as well as English language learners. Phonics is one of several key components in the beginning reading process that helps to develop strong readers, and I feel well-equipped to effectively instruct students on phonics.

Special Needs

As partial fulfillment for my Master of Education degree and Teaching Credential, I have completed and passed (with a grade of A+) the course of Inclusive Educational Practices. The course had satisfied the Commission on Teacher Credentialing requirements for Special Education. Throughout the course, topics studied were methods for accommodating special-needs students in the regular classroom, developing an Individual Education Plan, characteristics of special-needs students, lesson planning to accommodate individual differences, and legislated mandates.

As part of my daily practice as a student-teacher, I modified my lessons whenever possible to meet the needs of my students with special needs, so that each student had equitable access to the lesson. I have also had experience attending an IEP meeting for a student with ADHD.

Study Skills

As partial fulfillment of my Master of Education degree and Teaching Credential program, I completed and passed (with a grade of A) the course of Cognitive Development and Education. Throughout the course, I examined the development of thinking and language in preschool and elementary school children with implications for education. Themes included facilitating children’s learning including methods of effective studying, motivation, and individual differences in cognition.

I have also taken a three-part course in Innovative Instructional Practices in which I have been instilled with effective pedagogical teaching methods in diverse elementary subject areas. Subject areas included mathematics, science, fine arts, social studies, language arts, English language development, health education, and physical education. As a Student-Teacher, I have had practical experience teaching the aforementioned content areas in classroom settings with special attention to meeting the needs of English language learners and students with special needs.
