My life has always been dedicated to the service of others. An existence with no regards to the well-being of people outside of yourself, is not as rewarding as knowing that your contributions has made a difference. I have 5+ years in the education field working in many different facets, ranging from classroom teaching, conducting professional development workshops, developing curriculum, mentoring, managing a team for an educational non-profit and providing support for fellow educators. All of these experiences will bring greater success to any of my future students and ensure that they are provided the tools needed to succeed in their future endeavors
I am a multi-skilled individual with an array of experience that has helped me become the person I am today. While working as a Team Leader for Jumpstart, a non-profit organization
that teams college students with high risk children, I was responsible for overseeing all logistics of an elementary school in North Philadelphia. Not only did I effectively have to communicate my expectations to twelve college students, but I had to work cooperatively with the students we were mentoring, their teachers, administration, parents, and the surrounding community. One of my biggest strengths that I learned from this experience is how seamlessly I can make people of varying ethnic, religious, and socio-economic backgrounds work willingly work together in an organic fashion.
From 2007 to 2011, I was a fifth grade
teacher at a Title 1 school in Miami, Florida. Even though I earned a Political Science
degree from Temple University, I was given an opportunity in the education field upon graduation. I felt I could learn skills and be challenged in a way that would better prepare me for all future endeavors. As an inclusion teacher, I was responsible for twenty-two students, all with their own unique personalities, along with academic strengths and weaknesses. It was my responsibility as an educator to be able to cater to each of my students specific needs, all while staying on track with the curriculum and handling many other administrative responsibilities. This experience has taught me many valuable skills: interpersonal communication, goal oriented planning, knowledge of core content standards, and leadership skills that I will carry with me throughout my professional career.
I believe I am a competent tutor in view of my successes in education. I look forward to hearing from you in regards to helping you or your children benefit from having an experienced, professional, and personable educator. Thank You for your consideration.
