I have an art degree BFA and taught art in elem. K-8 and special ed. in NY,NJ,and GA.
I have also given drawing lessons in all areas.
I am totally qualified to teach drawing from perspective to shadowing and all other areas.
I have taught for over 30 years in 3 different states and under many different environments. I have taught Grades k,1,2,3,4 full time and I have taught in inter-city and private schools also in all ethnic schools such as Afro-American GA and Espanic CA. I have degrees in elementary, English, early childhood and art. I have kept up with any new ways being used in the public system in language arts and health and science such as Bellwork (health and science], and Baldridge Training.
I have taught many students of all ages to improve skills in reading and writing. I am a Reading Specialist and have a bachelor degree in English.
Having an art degree a BFA and have taught painting in watercolor, oils, pen and ink and pastels.
I have taught elem. all grades K thru 8 in NY,NJ and GA. I have also taught special ed. with all levels of special areas.
I have a degree in reading and have taught phonics with children as young as first and to children as a second language.We first like to be able to recognize all letters and the with pictures we start on sounds of letters. When there is more than one sound such as with vowels we distinguish them.
I also use the rules of long vowel and silent e. Also other rules for phonics.
For example cat short vowel and words that rhyme rat sat etc., another long vowel and silent e and other words such as fame. Going down the alphabet is the easiest way. Also double vowels in words like rain you always hear the first vowel a and the second i is silent.
I have been a reading specialist for 3 years. I have also taught in classrooms where English was a second language Spanish, where phonics is extremely important. I have also taught children whose first language was Arabic. I do very well with phonetic learning. I believe this way of learning reading is extremely helpful.
I have taken and passed certification in CA. I also have been a Reading Specialist and have taught many ESL children of all ages. I find reading a very rewarding subject to teach since it is the beginning of education. So many subjects can't be fully taught without the knowledge of reading.
I have loved the game for many years. I coached HS girls tennis for 3 years and their record went from 1-11 to 12-0 in 2 years. I still have a great interest and play as often as I can. My ranking at one time was low A (that's in a league)
