My name is Joseph O. Currently, I hold a Masters of Arts in Teaching degree for Urban Education along with an Initial Elementary License to teach grades 1-6, and a certification in middle school math 5-8 in the state of Massachusetts. I have taught fourth and fifth grade for 4 years in Worcester, and I am conversant in Spanish. My goal is to empower elementary and middle school children by providing them with the tools they need to succeed. It is an honor to work with such a bright, diverse group of individuals every day, helping them to learn subject matter content, critical thinking, and self-empowerment. Working with different groups of students, I have become quite skilled at designing engaging, differentiated lesson plans to fit their individual needs. I have worked with all ability levels, limited English proficiency, and those with learning disabilities to help each student reach their potential and beyond.
