Hello, My name is Kerra H., and I am currently a small business owner. I taught children with special needs in the Prince George's school system. While I was with the school system, a request was made by the principal for teacher's to volunteer their time to tutor students who were having difficulty. I was the only one at that time who volunteered. I have been away from teaching for some time; but I still have the desire to help students who are struggling, especially in the areas of reading and writing. Getting to know a student's prior knowledge of subject area is very important for planning lessons. A conversation about books and reading material, having students read a short passage and writing samples, gives me a good place to start. Motivation is also key to spark student's interest in learning, therefore it is my top priority when planning lessons.
