I am elementary school teacher for over 18 years for Chicago Public Schools. I taught in the south side of Chicago area called Canaryville, and just completed teaching on the west side area known as Austin/Lawndale. The school on the west side of Chicago was part of the phase out program to close schools for poor performance. I want emphasize that my school did not close for low performance on standard test. I have taught several grades, work as a team player, and a mentor teacher to new teachers joining Chicago Public Schools. I taught in the After School Program for 12 years. This past year I was involved with the state of the art tutoring program with notebook computers for each student in the program. The name of the program is Learn It Systems; where each student works at their own pace. My responsibility in this program is monitor students progress and to keep them on task. As a teacher I have completed several program to increase and benefit students in areas of Reading,Writing, and Math. Some of these programs are Reading First, Guided Reading, Math Trailblazers, and EveryDay Math.
I am certified teacher and spent most of my teaching time in primary. I taught Kindergarten and 2nd grade the most in my career. I love teaching in a self-contained setting. You are able to get to know your students and they get to know you. I always tell my students we are family and we need to work together to be successful. I am always open to new ideas and trends in education.
I am a certified teacher who works with Special Education students to meet their IEP goals. I work closely with Special Education to make sure the goals listed on the IEP are done right. I modify the curriculum to make sure students expectation of her/himself. An example of modification would be if there are 20 spelling words on the test, he/she will only be responsible for 10. I work one on one with the students on daily basis.
As a teacher I highly recommend that students find a quiet place with no television or music to study. I tell students that I study best by looking in the mirror and doing it out loud. It is important that as a tutor/teacher you show the student how to study. As a tutor I will show students how to take notes. I will show students how to outline a chapter. It is sometimes better to study with a partner. I have years of experience working with all types of study methods. It is never a good idea to cram before a test.
