About Makenna

I always knew I would grow up to become a teacher. My passion to help others, along with my skills to be patient and discover multiple ways to explain things made it an obvious profession for me. I enjoy working with others and gain satisfaction from knowing I helped someone. I prefer to work with elementary age, due to my experience working with them but I enjoy working with all ages.

I worked with Special Needs students at an elementary school for two years and within the two years I found a new passion for not only teaching but for helping children who need a little more attention. I learned many skills on how to work with children who are struggling in many different ways.

I myself went from needing extra attention in elementary school to being on the honor roll in high school, through this I learned that anything is possible with hard work and dedication. I also earned a national award for "teach and train" during my student teaching. I would love to help other children find their potential also.

I've worked with all elementary aged children in small groups and one on one teaching mini math lessons to help them catch up to their other classmates. Through following the teachers lessons but finding new ways to approach the problems so that the student would understand and learn the material at their own pace.

My major is English. I enjoy helping others find their passion for reading, writing and grammar. I also worked in small groups and one on one to help children read, write a simple paragraph or write a whole story along with how to check their writing and make sure their grammar was correct and everything was spelled correctly. I use techniques that make the student understand how to find the correct spelling or word usage themselves.

Through my two years working in the school I implemented my lessons through common core.

I am majoring in Elementary teaching and have student taught elementary along with worked in a school for two years. Even though my focus is on English I have a passion for science that makes it come natural to me which makes it easy for me to explain concepts to others.

I cant wait to hear from you and help you succeed!

Autism

I am currently in school to become an Elementary school teacher and have student taught for 6 months, I taught all subject areas in a second grade classroom. I have also worked in small groups and one on one teaching all subjects with special needs students as a para for two years. Three of my special needs students had Autism and I spent a large part of my day with them and learned many techniques on how to keep their attention and keep them calm.
