I have taught most elementary grades and am well known for helping my students improve their skills. I frequently tutor home/hospital students who can't make it into school for some particular reason. I always find a way to make the learning interesting and related to the students personal situation. Many of my students improve their grades and develop a new outlook on education. I use humor, realistic situations, and a hands on approach to helping students succeed. I have taught many siblings as their parents liked how their older children grew in my classes.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been an upper elementary teacher for close to 17 years, mostly in 5th grade, but I've spent a few years in other grades (4th-8th). I'm the senior 5th grade teacher at my school, I've mentored new teachers and always am there to assist any teacher with a question. Many families have requested me for their younger siblings as they reached my grade level. I'm known as a strict teacher, but the students soon find that my classroom is a haven for those who want to learn and those who like to disrupt and disturb find out that they can't.

I have been an avid reader all my life and I always strive to instill the importance of reading in my students. For those having difficulty with deciphering words when they read I show them how to break words down into smaller "chunks" of more manageable letter groups. This allows them to sound out the words with greater success and allows them to understand the word they are looking at. Once they get to where they can do it alone, they read and not get stuck when they get to a new word. I'm the senior 5th grade teacher at my school.

I have always been an organized person, both student and teacher. I always guide my students to do the same with study time, notebooks, binders, and other organizational aids. My school utilizes a program called AVID that encourages and assists students to organize their work, materials, and time. I can show students the easiest ways to get the most effect out of their study time and how to manage their assignments so they don't run out of time to finish.

Special Needs

During my time as a 5th grade teacher I have worked with special needs students with ADD/ADHD, Autism, Emotional disorders, and other cases which weren't severe enough to be placed in a Special Education class. I treat these students the same as the rest of my class but give them a modified curriculum, more one on one time, specific seating, graphic aids, and additional time to finish. I also assess these students on how well they did on the assignments and don't compare them to the majority of the class. Most of my special needs students have been able to cope in class better and see more success on their work with me in their corner.
