I have an Instructional II Certificate to teach Elementary K -6. I have taught all-day kindergarten, first,and second grades.
I have had years of experience teaching math in both public and private schools. In a local Catholic School, I taught math to 2nd graders and kindergartners. I followed strict curriculum guidelines to insure the students performed in the 98 percentile ranking on achievement tests. I also was employed as a Title I Remedial Math teacher of 1st through 5th graders. I have experience as a Math Kindergarten through 6th substitute teacher, as well. My approach to helping students to be successful is to provide step by step instruction in problem-solving methods, while using a variety of manipulatives as needed. I also participated in a Teachers of Math summer workshop held at Northampton Community College that also involved collecting data throughout the following school year.
I am enrolled at Lehigh University for ESL Teacher Certification and have taken 9 of 12 credits I am scheduled to take the fourth course in Fall, 2011. I have experience in teaching non-native English speakers in my kindergarten classrooms.
Received Masters in Reading Education from Kutztown University. Years of experience in teaching reading, including phonics.
