I have taught in the elementary schools for the past 18 years. During my tenure, I have diligently committed my skills, strategies, energies and passion to render excellent researched academic teaching and learning models for my beloved students. My students have consistently achieved above benchmark scores on the state standardized assessments. I am committed to remain as my students' advocate so that they can utilize me as their dependable educational resource to maximize their learning and acquisition of skills and literacy strategies.
As part of my life-time devotion to education, I have designed family literacy nights to engage families in exploring the joy of reading and engaging in joyful literacy activities. The response to this program has been very favorable. I was awarded a grant to maintain this supplemental literacy support for the benefit of my students and their families.

ESL/ESOL

As a former ELL, I do empathize and seek to understand the cultural and educational challenges that the ELLs face and the critical need to overcome them.

I am eagerly committed to one of their dependable resources and advocate, whom they can trust and utilize in order to maximize their acquisition of the English Language.

I have taught reading in the Elementary school for several years and have recently earned my ESL certification. The best method to teach ELLs depends on their level of proficiency. This is accomplished by immersing them in cooperative learning groups supported by visual aids and variety of graphic organizers. Teacher's modeling and scaffolding is very crucial in the process of acquisition.

Phonics

I have been teaching phonics as one of the 5 vital components of teaching literacy in the primary/elementary grades in the last 20 years as a primary-grade teacher as well as reading specialist. Children need to be taught the sounds and their associations to letters. Once they acquire this significant skill, they can master reading, spelling and writing. Teachers must purposely and explicitly teach/model phonics within the context of authentic reading that contain words with specific vowel patterns. Words with specific patterns can be reinforced through group games such as making words.
