My name is Jennifer and would love to help you out with your educational needs. I am 29 years old and taught 1st grade at a Cy-Fair elementary school for 2 years. I am certified through the state of Texas to teach pre-k through 4th grade. I graduated in 2007 from the University of Illinois with a Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood Education.
I have baby-sat and worked with children (age 6 months - 16 years) since I was 13 years old. Additionally, during the summers, I have worked at YMCA camps and a Head Start Program.
I love working with children and my goal is to make learning fun! I have experience teaching all subjects (math, science, social studies, and language arts). My favorite subject to teach is reading, simply because as a child (and still today) I loved reading. As a teacher, it is very satisfying to to see a child reading, and know that I helped them to get there. My teaching style includes activities and lessons that are engaging and meaningful to the student. To do this, I make it a point to find out what interests my students. For example, if I was working on a writing lesson with my student who I knew loved dinosaurs, we would focus on writing a descriptive story about dinosaurs. I take the knowledge and interest that students already have, and apply it to something new.
I would love to be a part of your learning!
