I am thrilled to present lessons individually. Most recently I have worked with secondary students with learning disabilities in a high school learning center. I have 29 years of experience teaching grades 1-10 as a general educator and as a special educator. Teaching grades 3 - 5 in a Waldorf-inspired public charter school, brought me closer to what I do best: use the students' creativity and imagination to inspire learning.
Your lessons will be planned as follows: I will review main ideas, focus on the task, provide meaning, and involve you! I will state what you will be able to do, and why it is important. I will present how the information will be delivered to you. I will provide an example or model what learning style works for you. I will monitor understanding of task with feedback from you. I will provide time for guided practice in front of me. I will provide independent practice (homework).
I am willing to work with the greater group of teachers' curricula, as needed, conferencing and coordinating services to ensure success.
Working with Secondary and Elementary students, I have experienced students' daily successes, as well as their ultimate triumphs over learning disabilities,as demonstrated by winning science fair awards, and graduating with improved grade point averages towards college eligibility.
I hold a California Teaching Credential, Multiple Subjects, California Education Specialist Credential, K-12 CLAD Credential, (cross cultural education) Waldorf Education Summer Teachers' Training (1998-2002), Kentucky Special Education Certification, K-12 and Kentucky Elementary Certification, K-8.
