I am a certified (all subject areas) elementary school teacher and have been teaching 3rd grade for 9 years. My specialty is reading comprehension, but I will gladly support any subject area. My work ethic is strong, my dedication to students steadfast; and so I've been told, my patience undying. Children are always worth my investment.
I look forward to helping your child become a lifelong learner.
I am a certified teacher with 8 plus years teaching experience. I am usually assigned Special Ed or Inclusion classes due to my experience and success rate with all types of learners. I attend several continuing education opportunities throughout the year to stay informed and updated in best practices.
I am an expert reading/language arts teacher. Before I completed my degree I pulled small groups for phonics intervention to boost reading readiness, fluency, and comprehension. Currently, I am teaching summer school to second graders in the G.E.M.S. program, which helps ESL students gain mastery in English. All aspects of breaking down letter sounds and words is heavily utilized.
In my own studies, as well as my teaching career, I have invested a great deal of time learning and teaching effective study strategies that streamline thinking using note taking, reading comprehension strategies, as well as several research based techniques for successful studying. I am fortunate enough to have been asked by elementary, secondary, and even college students to help them become efficient in studying.
TAKS, now called STAAR, is the big hairy monster that many students, especially those I in third grade taking it for the first time, would live to avoid. Although I have my own professional opinions regarding standardized testing, my students' passing rates and testing success, even with those at-risk, speaks to my ability to effectively guide students toward positive test taking experiences.
