I majored in anthropology with a focus in archaeology at the University of North Carolina (GPA 3.0). I attended a field school in Lammanai, Belize in June 2004. Archaeology is one of my biggest passions, and I would love to spread the knowledge of this field to my students.

Finally, I have plenty of supplementary resources to help students who are having difficulties.

As a teacher of English for the past seven years, I often have found ways to integrate grammar instruction into my classes. Being able to articulate oneself in a concise and accurate fashion is critical to securing employment. One of the major areas I focused on during my MA studies was Grammar Pedagogy or the role of grammar in English instruction. I believe grammar should be taught contextually through reading, speaking and writing. It should not be taught in isolation.
As an ESL teacher at an elementary school, phonics and phonemic awareness is primarily what I teach for my K-1 students. Throughout my year of teaching, I have seen students master the alphabet and blend words independently. I have many resources that enable my students to excel in phonics. I use data to pinpoint where my student is, and then I teach sounds and high frequency words to aid with decoding. By improving decoding and high frequency word knowledge, students transition from the learning to read stage to the reading to learn stage.
I have taught ESL for the past six years. Five of those years I taught in South Korea. As part of my instruction, I taught my students reading strategies so they could become independent readers. I strongly believe in extensive reading, and promoting a love of reading in every student I teach. With my elementary school students, I take my students through phonics, phonemic awareness activities and reading strategies ranging from beginning to advanced. I support and supplement what my students are learning in the classroom.
