If you are looking for a master teacher you can trust to bring out the best in a student, then keep reading.
Every student has the capacity to be a star student. There is no limit to learning. A teacher's job is to open doors for the student that allow a student to primarily have confidence in their own ability to succeed. The teacher's skills are utilized in determining the methodology used to teach the needed skills. The use of student data and experienced observation provide information that will help the student. Each student is different and has individual learning skills that should be addressed in each lesson while still keeping the academic focus.
I have extensive classroom and tutoring experience in both Elementary Education and in middle and high school English. My students have consistently achieved above average proficiency in FCAT scores. Elementary school math is also an area of expertise for me having taught math for many years and setting up remedial and enrichment classes for summer tutoring.
I am a highly qualified teacher as defined in the No Child Left Behind Act, and the English Department Chair in my current teaching position. I have a Florida State Professional Teaching certificate with certification in both elementary education K-6, and English 6-12. I am completely bilingual and although not certified, I have complete mastery of the Spanish language in both the written and oral form.
I am a published poet, and I have occasionally done free-lance writing for various magazines and newsletters. I think of myself as highly creative, energetic, patient, responsible, and a high achiever.
