I spent 15 years teaching ESE students in Middle and High school in all subject areas and the last 3 years in assisting students in 11th and 12th grade in passing the FCAT Reading I spent 3 years in an Alternative School in Citrus County and 5 years in an Alternative School in Marion County. I enjoy helping students who are trying to reach their goal and try to push them to their highest level to succeed. This past year I taught middle school Language Arts at a small private school in Hialeah and will be returning in August. I enjoy the one on one contact of tutoring as it gives myself more time to that individual student to help prepare him/her to succeed.

ADD/ADHD

As an ESE teacher for 15 years, I had many students who were ADD/ADHD. I had to break down their curriculum into smaller sections because they had difficulties concentrating and focusing for longer periods of time and were easily distracted. Instead of giving them 10 words to study and learn for a spelling test, I gave them 5-7 and the same with Math. Instead of giving them 20 problems to complete for a daily lesson, I would give them 10. I found out that they didn't get as frustrated and it helped my classroom management as well.

Baseball

I have an extensive background and experience from Little League through college baseball. I managed and coach high school baseball on the high school level for 17 years, college for 5 years plus 3 years in Little League baseball.

Basketball

I played basketball in junior high school as well as intramural basketball while in college at the University of Arizona. I took a class in college on the theory of coaching basketball as well and have coached a few teams at the boys and girls club.

English

I have taught English at both the middle school and high school levels. I have taught mainstream English as well as Special Education English.

Grammar

I have taught both English and Reading and grammar plays an important part in being successful in English. Knowing the correct grammar and different aspects of it can help you better understand what you are writing and reading as well.

Phonics

I have taught ESE English and Reading for 15 years and Phonics played an integral part of the curriculum which I taught.

Social Studies

As a ESE self-contained teacher for 9 of my 15 years, I had to teach Social Studies in middle school as one of the subjects. I enjoyed giving students different hands on projects to do and to see the creativeness that my students showed, the hard work they put into the projects and the results at the end of them.

Softball

I have an extensive baseball background but also coached various girl's Little League softball as well. I was fortunate to manage 2 all-star teams also.

Special Needs

I am Florida certified in ESE K-12 and have 15 years experience in the classroom teaching ESE students, 9 which were in a self-contained classrooms. I taught 1 year in a DJJ faciity as well as two Alternative schools for students with academic, emotional, and behavior problems. I have taught both ESE English and Reading and I have my Reading Endorsement K-12 also.

Study Skills

As an ESE teacher for 15 years and 9 of it as a self-contained teacher, I always incorporated Study Skills into the curriculum to help assist my students to be come better organized and learn different strategies to help them succeed in different subject areas.

Track & Field

I was the Head Girls Track and Field Coach for 9 years at Citrus High School in Inverness, Florida. I specialized in coaching the sprinters, relay teams, and the Long and Triple Jumpers. We had many successful teams as well as individuals who won medals at the state championships.

Vocabulary

I have taught both English and Reading and Vocabulary plays an intregal part in both areas. To read and understand the words will make it easier to read and comprehend them. It helps you in your Writing as well so people can understand and comprehend what you are writing.

Writing

I have 15 years of teaching special needs students in most areas, mostly focused on English, Writing, and Reading. I am Florida certified in ESE K-12 and Reading K-12. I have been to Writing workshops to help students improve their writing skills as well as prepare for the FCAT.
