As a third grade teacher and instructional tutor, I have had the opportunity to work alongside students with diverse academic abilities. I understand different learning styles and have successfully implemented specialized instruction for students with learning disabilities and ADHD. I am current in curriculum trends in all subjects and have been trained in Growing with Mathematics, Empowering Writers, and Reader's Workshop.
I use creative lessons to teach the components of a narrative story, incorporating templates and sentence starters for students who have difficulties organizing their work. In math, students need to have a solid understanding of the basics and be able to explain how they obtained their answer. Although I love teaching writing and math, I specialize in reading with a focus on phonics, comprehension, fluency, and critical thinking skills. Starting with an initial assessment, I will pinpoint your child's needs as a reader and work specifically on this area using monthly assessments to document growth.
In all areas of the curriculum, I have a solid understanding of what it takes to achieve goal or above on the CMTs and have successfully enriched lessons in all disciplines so that all students are prepared for the state mandated test. With my commitment to high standards, and dedication to guide all children in the learning process,I am confident I can guide your child to reach her or his fullest potential in all areas of the curriculum.
