As a K-6 elementary school teacher with a M.A. in Teaching, I tailor my lessons to meet the individualized needs of my students. After being in an elementary school setting for a full 2 years, I have worked 1:1 and in small groups with English language learners, students with special needs (autism, dyslexia, visual impairment, ADHD), students with emotional and behavioral challenges, gifted and talented students, and students below grade level.
I believe that all students can succeed! I ensure that students are motivated to learn and are engaged by making my lessons fun, hands-on, and meaningful. I use Responsive Classroom techniques when teaching. This approach to teaching promotes positive reinforcement, giving students a choice, giving students responsibility for their learning, and strong parental involvement.
I have an array of content knowledge, and a strong understanding of how to build a foundation for reading, writing, and math skills. I also speak several languages, including Urdu, Hindi, Punjabi, Spanish, and some Arabic.
The best thing about teaching is seeing young minds blossom after watching my students transfer their knowledge to new contexts. I am one who is willing to do whatever it takes to see my students succeed!
