ADD/ADHD

In my 17 years of classroom experience, I have worked with hundreds of children with ADD/ADHD. Some methods that I have found to be effective are chunking of the content and the amount of time spent on that content, repetition of directions, a tutoring environment free of distractions, and self monitoring strategies by the student, and patience. I have also found that tapping into multiple modalities of instruction and student expression to be very effective.

American History

I have been a Social Studies teacher with Montgomery County Public Schools for the past 17 years. During that time, I have taught US History A and B as well as NSL Government. I am currently teaching 8th grade US History A. US History was also my focus of study in college.

Dreamweaver

I have both used and taught students how to use Dreamweaver for a number of years. In the Web Design class that I teach, I first introduce students to HTML which will serve as their foundation, then slowly introduce them to Dreamweaver. We start with getting acclimated to the software by setting up a basic page or template. Then I introduce them to the basic features one at a time, such as inserting an image, links, and formatting text.

Elementary (K-6th)

Although I am a secondary teacher, I do have experience teaching elementary students as well, particularly with the older ones. For 3 years I taught summer enrichment classes to elementary students, ranging from grades 1 through 5. We worked primarily on reading, writing, and math skills.

European History

For the past 14 years, I have taught 7th Grade World History, which includes European History. I have taught the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, Russia, and both World Wars. I have also taught Modern World History at the High School level.

General Computer

For the past 8 years I have taught the Computer Applications / Web Design class at my school. I am proficient in HTML as well as many applications. Before I was a teacher, I worked as a technical support specialist for a computer company, where I would repair and install computers.

Geography

As a Social Studies teacher for the past 17 years, I have spent a lot of time teaching Geography to my students. This includes, but is not limited to, reading physical and political maps, teaching physical geography / landforms, location (latitude and longitude), resources, and demographics. I also construct "mental maps" with my students so they understand the placement of major physical and political features on the planet.

HTML

In the winter of 1996 I was snowed in with a computer and a book on HTML. That was when I constructed my first website. Since then, I have taught myself the language of HTML and have authored many websites and have won an award for my work. I currently teach a web design class where I teach my students how to build websites, from scratch, without the use of a web editor.

Microsoft Outlook

I have used Outlook for my email and calendar needs for over 15 years. In the school system where I work Outlook is used on a daily basis to communicate with each other and to schedule appointments. I am proficient at using most of Outlook's options and customizing its settings and can teach it to others.

Reading

As a Social Studies teacher, I am teaching and reinforcing reading skills consistently in my classroom. In addition, I have taught Reading in a Saturday school program for the past 7 years. I have also taught summer school reading courses for several years to Middle School students.

Social Studies

I am experienced Social Studies teacher with 17 years of experience. I have taught grades 6-12. My experience ranges from Ancient World History, to Modern World History, to US History and Government (Civics). My focus is primarily in middle school but I have taught several years at the high school level as well.

Special Needs

I have worked with a wide range of students with special needs throughout my teaching career. I was a Special Education teacher for several years, working in a self contained program for students with emotional disabilities. I taught several summers for Montgomery County Public School's Extended School Year (ESY) program, where I worked with elementary and middle school children with learning and physical disabilities. Even in my years as a general educator, I continue to work with special needs students in a general education classroom setting, including students with Individual Educational Plans (IEP) and 504 plans as well as speakers of other languages. I implement lessons using the UDL, Universal Design for Learning, to differentiate instruction for the different learning styles in my classroom. I work closely with the LAD and ED programs at my school to insure that my students needs are being met. I have taken post graduate classes and workshops within our school system to learn strategies to better assist students with special needs.

Study Skills

In my many years in this profession, have explicitly worked with students as a teacher, a mentor and as a private tutor, in the areas of study skills and organization. As a 7th grade team leader, I also authored a pamphlet for parents to take home to assist them in helping their children study develop good study habits. I have also successfully used these strategies with students that I have tutored and mentored, improving study habits and their overall performance in school.

Web Design

I am a self taught web designer with 18 years of experience. I am proficient in HTML. I have created many websites for my school and clients and have won an award for my work on the Montgomery County Public Schools (MD) website. I have also taught a Web Design class to 8th graders for the past 8 years.
