Currently, I am a substitute teacher for Broward County Schools. Previously, I was a Media Specialist for Dade County Schools - Hialeah Miami Lakes Sr. High School and a Librarian 1 For Miami Dade Libraries - Sunny Isles Beach Branch Library working with children and young adults. Also, I have English and media certification in the state of Florida. My hobbies include reading, biking, cooking, walking, and gardening.
I work in all subject areas. I am more capable in certain areas for which I took the certification tests that this website offers. I have a lot of experience teaching math including algebra 1 and geometry as I was a long time sub in those subject areas. Also, I have a lot of experience teaching high school and middle school English and reading and basic science. I enjoy working with students and have lots of patience.
My goals are to bring students "up to speed" in their subject areas by helping them gain a basic understanding of their school work. I like to use different methods to help my students, including restating, using illustrations, encouraging creativity, and positive reinforcement. I have lots of enthusiasm for reading, writing and learning. in general, and would like to pass this enthusiasm onto my students.
