I strongly believe that quality, innovative, differentiated education should be accessible to people of all backgrounds and ages across the spectrum from basic foundations to picking up a language
or hobby later in life. I am especially passionate about quality foundations for K-2 elementary students. I believe that when children's hearts are captured with a curiosity for learning at a young age and provided strong foundations in literacy and math
it has a tremendous impact on the rest of their education - indeed it positively impacts the rest of their lives. My experiences in education continue to enforce this belief and passion to pour into young children's education.
I live in Detroit and currently work as a K/1 ESL
and Math Interventionist at a school in SW Detroit. I have previously worked as a literacy, phonics
and reading tutor, a Montessori elementary and Spanish
teacher, and a toddler teacher. I have also worked with Reading and Language Arts
Centers and am certified as a Phonics First tutor - a program focused on the Orton-Gillingham multisensory phonics curriculum. I believe in individualized and creative approaches to help every student succeed!
I'm a recent graduate from U of M. I studied Linguistics and Spanish and plan to pursue certification in ESL and Elementary Education
at EMU this coming winter. I love learning languages, traveling, reading, writing
, and teaching! I also love doing arts and crafts with children, creating games and doing whatever it takes to make learning fun! I love children and look forward to meeting you and your family!
