I have five years of experience in teaching Early Childhood Education, tutoring middle school students for the CRCT, and a B.A. in Mass Media Arts with a concentration in Film and Radio where I graduated Summa Cum Laude with 3.85 GPA. As an alumni of Teach For America, I have taught various grade levels and subjects in the Atlanta Public Schools System. I also have been a facilitator for the The Treasure Box School of Etiquette Program which campaigns for teaching young ladies the importance of etiquette, self-esteem and positive thinking.
With a Bachelor's degree in Mass Media, I have worked with different production companies on commercials, films, music videos and photo shoots throughout Atlanta and have produced some of my own projects with one of my shorts being awarded for best Drama in an independent film festival. I also have knowledge of radio production from two years experience at 90.9FM in Houston, Texas.
I am an advocate for allowing students the opportunity to think outside the box and believe that differentiation is a key factor in creating life long learners. Seeing that all people do not learn the same, my vision and passion for teaching has allowed me the blessing of opening FAME Fine Arts Academy, a studio that develops the creativity of children through the performing and visual arts.
I also believe that phonics, reading comprehension and language are extremely fundamental tools when analyzing student success in other subject areas and that the emphasis on the importance of reading is necessary for retention. My strengths include planning lessons that correlate with standards and goals, but also push the envelope in terms of creativity and technology. I am an outgoing individual that can assume a leadership role who also loves the sharing of ideas and gaining knowledge from a team. I believe in motivating students, awarding progress, and being completely honest and realistic when setting short and long term goals. I wish to build and ensure relationships with families that extend beyond a classroom setting.
I am confident that my experience and enthusiasm for teaching and learning make an excellent fit for students' needs and concerns. My skills and well rounded background will make a valuable asset for your tutoring needs.
