I am currently a 1st grade teacher at King Center Charter School. Here, I have the opportunity to teach ELA, writing, math and pull small groups for AIS math and ELA instruction. The students I work with have shown an average of a 35% increase in math test scores and a 52% increase in ELA test scores. Before coming to King Center Charter School I was a preschool teacher in the city of Rochester. I planned everyday for two half day classes of students with a wide range of abilities and needs, both academically and socially. I collaborated daily with my teaching assistant and my students’ service providers to find the best ways to meet their IEP goals.
As of the 2012-2013 school year New York State has adopted the new Common Core Standards. These standards are more rigorous and are meant to get students college and career ready starting as early as Kindergarten. I have been implementing the CCS for over two years in my classroom and have a thorough knowledge of where the state expects students to be and the tools to get them there.
