Hello! My name is Justine and I have been a certified teacher for the past 16 years. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education (K-8), with a concentration in Social Studies. I also possess a Master of Science Degree in Reading and Literacy Development.
I have a wide range of experiences. I have taught math, science, social studies, and reading to students in grades first through sixth and have held the position of Reading First Literacy Coach. As a literacy coach, I took an active role in improving classroom reading instruction and intervention by sharing my expertise through training and in class support. I have obtained the experience and expertise to deliver differentiated instruction using scientifically based research models. I am capable of identifying appropriate instructional strategies and interventions to address diverse learning needs and to improve all students’ achievement.
As an educator, my mission is to meet the specific needs of each student. I plan lessons based on the individual’s level and need. I give each student a variety of opportunities to acquire knowledge and skills through positive, creative, and flexible instruction. I teach each student their importance to society, and help develop self-esteem and critical thinking skills.
I have the experience and education to help each student reach his or her goals. I will put my heart and soul into helping the student improve their academic abilities, but I cannot do it alone. I need the student’s commitment to learn. I will be there to assist, but it will require real effort on the student’s part to achieve success.
