A child's brilliance is but a mouse click away... I'm serious about education!
My name is Jennifer and I currently teach English/Language Arts to both fifth and sixth grade students in the Nashua School District. I received my Master of Education in Elementary /General Special Education from Rivier University in the year of 2005 and have been teaching ever since.
When it comes to teaching I truly believe MOTIVATION is the key to success. As many parents are aware of, there are so many alternatives competing for students' attention, motivating them to focus and perform is increasingly difficult. In all of my years of teaching, there are several important things that I've learned along the way. When a child is having a difficult time in a subject, students respond with interest and motivation: (1) to teachers who appear to be human and caring, (2) active involvement in their own learning, and (3) visuals, web diagrams, and videos. As a teacher I want my students to become autonomous, self-regulating, intrinsically motivated students.
I believe that learning is and should be fun and exciting. There is no greater feeling for me when I see that light bulb go off and the child's face lights up when they've just achieved something new! Learning should be a "Want to" not a "Have to."
I look forward to helping your child succeed.
