Hi,
My name is Channa, I have been a classroom teacher for the past 17 years and have loved every moment of it. I completed my undergraduate studies at Sam Houston State University and my masters degree at Nova Southeastern University both in education. I have taught Kinder, 1st, 4th and 5th grades. My passion is creating life long learners while being sensitive to the diversity in every child by using a hands on approach. Each child is unique, and as a teacher I meet their individual needs while focusing on creating a love for learning. We have fun in my classroom, playing educational games and participating in all types of plays. I build lasting relationships with my students by being there for them when they are in need of a helping hand, extra help, or a shoulder to lean on.

I am the proud parent of a daughter who will be in 7th grade next year. She keeps me busy with competitive cheer and school cheer.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently hold a Texas Teachers Certificate that is for Elementary Self-Contained 1-8. It is valid for lifetime. I have been a classroom teacher for the past 17 years, all of which have been at the elementary level. I hold a Masters Degree is Education as well.

Elementary Math

I have taught elementary math for the last 17 years. 9 of the years have been in a TAKS/STAAR grade. During this time, all of my students have passed the math section of the state test.

Phonics

I have taught elementary school for the past 17 years. I have been trained in many phonics programs, one being Saxon. I have taught 1st grade for many of the 17 years and used a phonics based reading program. I hold a Texas Teaching Certificate that is Elementary Self-Contained - Lifetime Certificate.

Special Needs

I have taught both resource and self contained special education in the past. My classroom is the inclusion classroom, which means all fourth grade special education students who receive inclusion time get to come and participate with my class during a lesson. I have taught special education at a school that was dedicated to special education only. The students who attended the school were not able to function in a regular school setting; therefore, they were placed in the Carlton Center.

Study Skills

Study Skills is a major part of being successful in the classroom. I have attended many hands on trainings to help the students retain information given to them. One of them being a training held by Dinh Zikes, the queen of Foldable in the Classroom.

TAKS

I have taught 5th grade for a year and fourth grade self contained (all subjects) for the last 6 years. In 6 years I have had 100% pass the writing TAKS.
