Elementary (K-6th)

I have been employed as an Educational Assistant in my school district at the Elementary level of K-6 for the past 13 years.I have also been tutoring students at these same grade levels for the past 2 1/2 years.This includes both ELA and Math.Have worked in each grade level assigned either to specific student(s) or through Resource Room.

Phonics

I have worked in Special Ed at the Elementary level for the past 12 years. I have worked individually, in classrooms, and in the resource rooms of all of the elementary schools in my district. In the course of this I have taught phonics to many students, which includes both lexical and sub-lexical methods. In tutoring students at this age level, I utilize this same approach to either introduce phonics for the first time or reinforce patterns or rules already learned to guide students to learn to read. This is a critical skill that must be mastered in order to progress to leveled reading and spelling and vocabulary that will ultimately follow this needed skill. I introduce basics of vowel and consonants, short and long vowels, digraphs, blends and rules that generally apply. This would include rhyming and creating words to practice using and sounding out words towards mastery. This is basic to building a foundation for moving on to reading, spelling and vocabulary, which would be the next steps with most students that I would be (and am presently) working with at this grade level with WyzAnt. I am in a unique situation to be able to use the skills I have acquired hands-on in my job as well as access to materials and methods to use tutoring as well. I would like to continue to offer this skill to WyzAnt students present and in the future.

Special Needs

I am currently in my 12th year as a Paraprofessional Educational Assistant in the Special Education Department of my school district. I have been a one on one with special needs children for most of these years, as well as a shared aide for students in the SPED department. I have been assigned to students with Downs Syndrome and Autism, ADHD, and many other special needs classifications. I have worked with said students in both a General Ed classroom environment, Resource Rooms, as well as in a contained classroom with students with similar needs. I am required to participate in several Professional Development courses each year within the SPED as well as courses I have taken for credit to further myself within my school district.
