I have many years of experience teaching English at the secondary level. I have helped students learn to read with better comprehension, write with fluency and detail, and analyze literature with a critical eye. Additionally, I have numerous years helping students prepare for and pass their state standardized tests, even when failure has occurred in the past. I have worked with both middle and high school students, and I enjoy tailoring sessions and lessons to meet the needs of individual students. In addition to being certified to teach English at the secondary level, I am certified to teach Visual Art in grades K-12 and I love to incorporate Art and Art History into my lessons.
Teaching secondary school has educated me on the unique needs of the age level, and I have learn the mentorship skills and patience required to successfully work with teenagers.
Lastly, I have been afforded the luxury of teaching student populations that are diverse racially, socioeconomically, and culturally. This has significantly enriched me as an educator and improved my ability to encourage students of varied backgrounds to meet high academic standards. For me, being an educator is about tailoring instruction to student needs, creating energetic lesson plans, and being willing to devote time to your career beyond the workday. My goal is to continue to develop my skills as an educator, but also to stay focused on my individual students. Thank you for your consideration and I sincerely look forward to the opportunity to speak with you.
