I have a brother who has been diagnosed with ADD and ADHD, along with a plethora of other things. I have been in classrooms for 6 years, and there have been children in each who fit this description. I work with them by using short word phrases, refocus them continually as needed, and present them with short lessons to keep them engaged and interested.
I currently teach in a school where part of the student population consists of children with this diagnosis. Each child behaves differently, so we treat each child differently.
My younger brother was diagnosed with autism, so I grew up with it. I also currently teach children who fall on the spectrum. Each child needs individual and varied instructions, but they receive it so they can achieve their potential.
I am a Catholic who was raised by a devout family and attended private religious schools from K-12. I know the Bible and the Catholic Catechism.
I am able to assist with cooking. I have not had college culinary courses, but was brought up in a kitchen and can make almost anything. I love cooking and know many techniques.
I was in advanced drawing throughout high school and again during college. I have displayed and sold some works in New York. I graduated two courses shy of an Art minor.
I am currently teaching children with dyslexia. We use different strategies and techniques to help them learn and get through their daily reading and writing.
I have a Master's in Elementary Education and have current certified teaching degrees from NY, MA, and FL. I have taught in schools for 6 years.
I used Microsoft Outlook during my job for 6 years as an Assistant Director for a Swim Program held at my college.
I was two classes away from a minor in Art at Pace University. I have taken classes for years and can provide support in every aspect of acrylic, water, and oil based painting.
I have worked with children aged 2 and up with Phonics in a variety of workbooks and hand on activities. I learned how to read with a phonetic based program.
As a teacher I am continually implementing my public speaking skills. I took a course in college, and have helped other adults with their speeches, body language, and eye contact, etc.
I received a religious education at a Catholic school from grades K-12. I also took World Religions and studied different cultures and religions in college.
I grew up with a brother and two cousins who each had a differnt set of special needs. I worked at a school for 2 years for children with behavioral, emotional, and social problems. I am able to work with and look past any needs to help accommodate the student and help them work to the best of their ability.
I have taught study skills to middle school, high school, and college students. I earned a 3.7 GPA in college. It's all about learning each person's specific niche and working with it to achieve their goals.
I was Assistant Director of a Swim Camp for 6 years in NY. I taught swim classes for those six years to all ages. I was on my college Swim Team.
