I am a patient, caring, experienced, certified, highly qualified teacher who enjoys teaching young children. For the past 16 years I have been a Kindergarten - 2nd Grade teacher working with children of diversity, including learning and behavioral, in the RI public school system. I have implemented several Reading programs focusing on Balanced Literacy: Phonics, Phonemic Awareness, Comprehension, Fluency, Vocabulary, and Writing. Math programs include: EnVisions and Investigations. Basic to abstract skills are addressed in both areas. One-on-one, I assess your child's skills to target his/her academic weakness(es) and develop goal(s). My well-prepared, meaningful lessons support your child's individual needs with research-based strategies and effective 'tried and true' instructional techniques that work. Progress monitoring is on-going; strategies change as necessary. In spite of learning challenges, proficiency can be achieved.
Well organized, flexible, punctual, friendly, and a non-smoker, I feel confident that my experience and style are a good match for all young learners. Professional references presented upon request.
I look forward to meeting with you!
