Greetings! My name is Denika and I am a Maryland Certified teacher working with Montgomery County Public Schools. Currently I teach 2nd grade in Silver Spring, MD. I have been with MCPS for the past 7 years. I have also spent one year teaching abroad in Scotland on a Teacher Exchange grant with the Fulbright Teacher Exchange Program. My experience includes working with students with special needs, English language learners, and gifted and talented students. I am available to provide enrichment opportunities for your child as well as support in areas of need.
One of my very first teaching jobs was at an alternative day school for students with ADD/ADHD, Aspergers and Autism. Currently I three students in my classroom with ADHD. I have also been supporting/tutoring a 9-year-old girl for the past three years. I have not only taught her reading and writing, but also strategies that will allow her to be successful in school despite her ADHD.
I have had a wonderful opportunity to work at a home for disabled children, many of whom had physical, as well as mental and social handicaps. One of my very first teaching jobs was at an alternative day school for students with ADD/ADHD, Aspergers and Autism.

I currently am an elementary school teacher, Maryland certified, for graded Infants to 8th grade. I look forward to working with your student.
