I have a Master of Science
in Early Childhood Education (graduated with High Honors GPA 3.9), and have earned certification in EC-4, Generalist 4-8, ESL
(1-8) and G/T. As a highly compassionate and approachable teaching professional, with over 8 years of hands-on teaching experience in Texas, I am confident in my ability to become a valuable member of your teaching staff.
Being a versatile educator, I have taken the opportunity to instruct a wide variety of students from various backgrounds and all facets of society. As a result, I am a compassionate teacher, who remains sensitive to children's unique needs, employs effective listening, provides individual and whole group support, integrates multicultural teaching units, and offers positive encouragement and reinforcement to keep students focused and motivated.
One of the most effective ways that I assist students is by developing and presenting comprehensible and stimulating lesson plans that facilitate all learning styles. I research, locate, and incorporate a variety of resources to accommodate students via visual, audio, tactile, and kinesthetic methods. In addition, I integrate literature
, Writers' Workshop, phonic activities, and technology to ensure that each child is able to comprehend and retain the concepts and language
. My goal is to foster and maintain an open, honest, communicative, and supportive classroom, in which each student feels safe, secure, special, and appropriately challenged.
I worked for NASA and JSC as a language instructor for over two years, teaching Russian
I would enjoy the opportunity to meet with you personally in order to discuss how my diverse skills and experience will enable me to make a valuable contribution to your learning experience. Thank you for your time and consideration.
