I have been working with the youth in my community for over eight years through Americorps, the Y.M.C.A., The Youth Center and the Summer Recreation Program. I recently graduated from Canisius College with a Master of Science in Education. I am certified to teach English Language Arts grades 7-12, and have been a substitute teacher in the Batavia City School District for the past two school years, in every subject. I have a favorite quote by Albert Einstein that describes my teaching methods perfectly. “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” I create every lesson with care, keeping in mind the types of learners I am teaching. I also try to incorporate my student’s interests in every lesson. The more they can relate to a new concept, the better they absorb it. I make it about them.
