ADD/ADHD

I am a certified special education teacher and have sixteen years of experience. I have worked with many students of all ages with ADD/ADHD over the years. I use a lot of positive reinforcement and motivational strategies to help students focus and be more successful in school.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have seven years of experience teaching special education at the elementary level. I have worked extensively with students from kindergarten through sixth grade in groups and individually. I am skilled at assessing students' skills and needs and use a variety of materials and strategies to increase their skills in reading, math and writing. I focus on using information regarding a student's preferred learning style and interests to build a program based on their individual needs.

English

I have fifteen years of teaching experience and have taught students of all ages how to read and write. I enjoy helping students learn how to speak and write fluently.

ESL/ESOL

My teaching background includes fifteen years of experience teaching special education. During my career I have worked with students with various cultural backgrounds. This year I have been working with elementary ESL students on increasing their reading and writing skills.

Special Needs

I have taught special education in Minnesota and North Dakota for fifteen years. I am licensed to teach students with emotional/behavioral disorders and cognitive disabilities. I am skilled at determining students' needs and teaching basic reading, math and writing skills to students in innovative ways. I enjoy teaching social skills and daily living skills to students using role plays and hands on activities.

Study Skills

I have taught students study and test taking skills for 16 years. I have found that it is very important to teach students how to be successful by organizing their materials and assignments. Once they are organized they can be taught specific skills to improve their performance on a assignments, projects and tests.
