Hello! My name is Ria. I hold a Masters in Special Education from the University of Arizona and a Bachelor's of Art in English from UMASS Boston. I am currently an ELA teacher for middle and high school students in the Brookline area. Many of my students use up to three languages in their daily lives, which makes my literacy instruction exciting, albeit challenging. Because I work with a variety learners at different instructional levels, I am familiar with augmenting instruction for these students to meet their individual needs.
I am experienced with:
* developing and adapting developmentally appropriate literacy instruction for a variety students at different reading levels
* recognizing the difference between teaching English as a second language and as a content area subject
* direct teaching of accountable talk and listening skills for students' academic and social settings
I am very flexible when it comes to scheduling and work hard to be as accommodating as possible for students and parents. I look forward to working with you!
