Teachers need to "Pitch it where they can hit it." We need to find out what our student needs are and how we can meet them. "If they can't learn the way we teach, then we must teach them the way they learn."
Hi, My name is Dawn. I truly believe learning is possible for all children if it is done with patience and care. Children are not learning disabled,they are " Learning strategy disabled." Every student needs to be taught strategies that are compatible with the way they think and learn. Once appropriate techniques are taught, I truly believe that learning problems will diminish.
Everything I teach is hands on and I tend to use a lot of visuals. Depending on your child's learning style, I am able to meet their needs effectively using a multisensory approach. I like to be in constant contact with your child's teacher as their input is invaluable and helps me in guiding my instruction.
I am an elementary teacher certified in the areas of general education and special education. I have worked with students identified as learning disabled,speech and language impaired, seriously emotionally disturbed, ADD/ADHD and autistic. I have also adapted curriculum and modified instruction for those with an Individualized Education Plan(IEP). In addition, I have also worked with groups of special education and general education students in after school tutorial programs. Main subjects taught are math and reading. I am currently a teacher in the Fort Bend Independent School District and I welcome the opportunity to work with your child.
