I am a certified literacy teacher who is currently working with remedial students. I taught as a classroom teacher before I took this position. I have vast experience working with children as a teacher and a tutor from Kindergarten to 8th grade. I teach reading and writing to students in grades 1 to 7 this school year.
I have attended professional development on the Common Core State Standards and I plan my lessons around these standards daily. I prepare the students for the NYS ELA tests each year and often score the tests.
When I teach young students I focus on phonics to improve their fluency. I teach comprehension skills and vocabulary. The key to understanding a text is a strong vocabulary. Depending on the age of the student I work on writing skills from a few sentences to an essay. The student and I plan, edit and proofread the writing. Often I use some reading programs online as an alternative to a textbook.
I also teach young children Gaelic which is my second language.
I am certified to teach grades 1 to 6 as a classroom teacher. I am also certified to teach literacy in these grades with a Masters degree. As a classroom teacher and as a reading teacher I have more than 25 years of teaching experience with these grades.
