As an elementary school teacher, I worked with children who were behind grade level. As a result, I have been trained to teach social studies and science, while keeping my students engaged. At the present time, I work with first through sixth grade special education children along with children who are behind grade level and help them with language arts and mathematics. I strive to use encouragement and positive reinforcement to help promote the learning process. In addition, I utilize manipulatives to help children understand mathematical and numerical concepts as well as reciprocal teaching to teach expository text within social studies and science courses. I believe that children need to experience literature in a positive way that demonstrates the power of a great book! I have worked with a variety of students that are still acquiring the english language and thoroughly enjoy working with children and adults who are learning english. I also have my CLAD.
