Hello Families and Students! I have over 15 years elementary teaching experience which includes working with children with special needs, ASD, ADHD, etc. I've taught 1st, 2nd, and 4th grade as well as before and after school homework tutoring clubs and reading intervention classes. I am a licensed elementary teacher K-6 in the state of CO with a M. Ed. degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Literacy Studies K-12.. Children and Reading are my passion! I love teaching reading to children who may be struggling or falling behind in their skills. I also enjoy teaching elementary math, writing, science, social studies, and English.

Additionally, I have two years plus experience working in a self-contained autism classroom for elementary aged students with ASD. I love these kiddos and have been told I have a special gift for working with children on the spectrum as well as children with emotional/behavior disorders. I have acquired a multitude of strategies and techniques that make self-regulation easier, and therefore, learning easier. I've also worked with children with special needs at an after-school program and summer day camp. I have ESL certification for teaching English as a second language. I especially love working one on one with students as this is where I see the most gains and improvement in academics, self esteem, and overall attitude and confidence towards learning. In my free time I enjoy going for walks, riding my bike, hiking, reading, and cooking.
I am warm, friendly, professional, organized, and punctual. I live in SW Longmont, CO with my son and cat. I look forward to meeting you and your student!

Phonics

I taught 2nd grade phonics instruction for 7 yrs. I also taught before and after school reading intervention classes for primary students who were below grade level in their reading abilities. I focused on phonics, sight words, and phonemic awareness with my students. Additionally, I tutor at a local tutoring company and I typically work with young students who are learning to read. We use a phonics based approach. I am currently working on a M.Ed degree in Literacy.
