I am a 7th and 8th grade Language Arts and Social Studies teacher. I absolutely love my job. I have had experience working with older and younger students. I did student teaching in 3rd and 5th grade classrooms. I also have a little boy who is on the autism spectrum. I work with him quite a bit in the home. My personality as a teacher is calm, directive when needed, soft spoken, and encouraging. I believe you can help a child learn by building them up with pointing out what they do well, and building from there. I also don't like doing boring work, so I try to make learning as much fun as possible. Research shows that if a student is engaged and interested in the task, he or she will be more successful. I am the type of teacher that the students love. They know they can't get much past me, and I will hold them to high expectations, but I care about them and I treat them with respect like the human beings that they are. I would love to meet your child to see if we would be a good fit.
