Hi, my name is Mrs. C, I have been working with children most of my adult life in one form or another. I am currently a 6/7 grade teacher where I teach all subjects in a contained classroom. I have taught middle school kiddos for eight years. To give you some background, I have two boys, one is in high school and the other is attending college as well as working. I have been involved in all aspects of their activities - coaching, mentoring, mothering, etc. I have also coached at several schools throughout my career both academically and athletically. I have many years of experience working with children at school as well as at church.

My main goal is for children to be successful at their specific level and help them to use their skills to the best of their ability. It is important that children have confidence in themselves and their abilities. I like to assess each student's abilities to see where their strengths and weaknesses are and then give them strategies to help them advance in all areas of academics and life in general.

Grammar is not always easy especially with the way we communicate with teeing and email but it is important to have a basic knowledge in it for when the write essays for school but also most importantly when applying for scholarships, employment, writing letters, etc.

Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

Math is a subject a lot of children do not like because they feel they are not good at it, but in reality they are because they use some form of math everyday, they just don't think about it much. Math can be fun and if children see its importance then I think they will have a better appreciation for it.

Reading,

Reading

I enjoy reading and I strive to make it a point in my classroom how important reading is. It helps students to learn vocabulary, grammar, spelling, and comprehension. Books can teach you many aspects of life and they can be just plain fun. I have read a variety of children's books and I enjoy them very much. It is also important that children be exposed to a wide range of reading materials, especially those that they will be exposed to as an adult.
Spelling,

Spelling

Spelling is very important but there are a lot of resources that students can use to spell such as spell check and online dictionaries. I still believe that students need to be able to spell so healthy spelling bee competitions can be fun.
Study Skills,

Study Skills

There are a variety of study skills to aid students with there studies. I have attended several teacher development courses to be able to teach students various ways that will allow them to be successful. There is never just one way to understand an outcome. Students need to figure out which strategies work best for them but they need to be exposed to a variety of strategies to do this. I believe I will be able to share my knowledge of these strategies for the student to succeed.
Vocabulary

Vocabulary

Vocabulary is important both when writing, speaking, and reading. We all need to have a good command of the English language to be able to express ourselves to get our point of view across to our audiences. Children need to understand how important vocabulary is and when and how to use it properly.

History

Social Studies

Social Studies

I have a passion for history. I would love to have my class participate in the annual History Day contest. Hopefully in the future.

All I need to have my single subject certificate in history is to take a California history course and a geography course.

Students big question "Why do we need to learn this, we will never need it?" Well, algebra and geometry is math that many fields of employment use and I like to point that out and show them and have them do projects that require these math skills.

Test Preparation

CBEST

CBEST

I took the CBEST test and passed it the first time before I became a teacher. I wanted to be a substitute and work part time while my children were small and it gave me the opportunity to see which grade level that I wanted to work in. The material that is on the test is similar to what has been taught in grades K-8 with some Pre-ALgebra and Algebra. I have been teaching middle school for the past 6 years and am currently teaching 2/3 grade combination class, teaching the common core standards but have been trained from 2-7 grade in common core.

Roberta is very sweet, and is knowledgeable about common core. we recommend her. been using her for a long time now.

She is tutoring my daughter in math. My daughter enjoys her as a tutor. She works with parents well in trying to work with strengths and weaknesses of the child. Also, willing to work with the teacher after permission from school and parents if parents request.
