I graduated college with a communications degree. It allowed me to have experiences working in sports and banking. Something was missing and that led me to teaching. I love every minute of it. I had the opportunity to teach ESL for six months right after I graduated with my teaching certification (I'm certified in elementary education and TESL). I now work for a private school. Math is the subject I started teaching. My favorite unit was on measuring. I had the mini Olympics with my classes after the unit was complete. Now I'm teaching English four periods per day to varying levels. I have anywhere from an elementary education to a freshman in college in my class. My focus in on writing but I use multicultural education to increase interest. I teach literature of a theme, using the Holocaust as my focus. With novels on the historical events (Caged, Number the Stars, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, The diary of Anne Frank, etc.), I tie in writing of narrative, informational, and persuasive essays. The five steps of the writing process are highlighted and the students then present ideas they learned through the unit as a way to show comprehension and understanding. Students also do a presentation on a concentration camp, preparing a PowerPoint and giving a speech to the class on what they learned. As the marking period comes to a close I take a field trip to the Holocaust Museum and invite guest speakers into the class.

Another rewarding opportunity I have at school is running the student council. We plan field trips, have guests speakers, plan incentives and offer college readiness services.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Pennsylvania teaching certification in elementary k-6. I completed my education course work through Wilson College's TIP program. I have passed all elementary praxis exams for the state of Pennsylvania. I completed my student teaching in the fall of 2010.

ESL/ESOL

I took classes to get my certification in ESL from Drexel University. I taught ESL for half a year at the high school level. While teaching I was in charge of planning four different levels of ESL and co-taught an English class, all without a curriculum to follow.

Grammar

I currently teach English at a private school and work closely with students studying for the GED. The writing process and types of writing is my main focus. Along with that we focus on grammar and the importance of not only proper sentence structure but proper word choice as well.

Public Speaking

My undergraduate degree is in Communications. I have taken a public speaking class in high school and college. I have given presentations at work in front of the entire company.

Softball

I have been playing softball for 25 years. I have coached in a community little league and a challenger league. I have helped fun camps for kids run through the local high school.

Study Skills

I help run the SAT and GED test prep program at my school. I assist students with their time management and organization skills in English class. I tutor students preparing for the English sections of both of the above mentioned tests.

Writing

I currently teach English at a private school. My focus is on writing and grammar skills. The writing process and proper grammar is an important aspect of my class. It is important that students be able to write a coherent sentence. I also work closely with students wanting to take their GED and are struggling with English/grammar/writing.
