As an experienced teacher of 35 years in the classroom, I have taught and worked with numerous children with learning differences such as ADD/ADHD. I have an undergraduate degree in special education and have worked with students who require special considerations in the classroom.
As a former reading specialist, I have worked with children who have dyslexia. These students need a special approach to reading; often they need a strong phonics approach to be successful when decoding words. Because of my reading background, I have many skills and strategies that would address the needs of the dyslexic student.
As a third grade teacher of more than 12 years, I have had experience working with children at the elementary level. I have worked with students in first grade through fifth grade as a special education resource teacher.
As a former third grade teacher and a seventh grade language arts teacher, I have experience teaching reading. I also have a masters degree with a specialization in reading. For many students, phonics is an approach to teaching the decoding of words.
As a former special education teacher, I have worked with many special needs students. With the understanding of specific learning differences, lessons can be designed to meet their unique learning needs. I have worked with students in the elementary and middle school settings.
As a former 3rd and 7th grade teacher and a reading specialist, I have prepared students for and administered the STAAR test. While this test requires students to apply their skills through application, I have many strategies to help students meet the challenges of this rigorous test.
Study skills are imperative for all learners, however, as students begin their middle school years, they need a set of study skills to assist them in their core subject areas. These include skills such as how to take notes, where to file papers and notes, and ways to organize and manage time. With over 35 years of teaching experience, I can help students of all ages with these important skills.
