I mainly work in the elementary schools on a Per Diem basis, although sometimes I work in the middle schools.

I have taken an Elementary Education course at Rhode Island College, but I got my official degree in English. I am a substitute teacher for the Waterbury School district. I mainly work in the elementary schools on a Per Diem basis, although sometimes I work in the middle schools. I find that kids struggle with math when they don't understand why it works, so I often take the time to explain math with real life examples. Although it takes memorizing to learn all the multiplication tables and other math problems. For language arts, I am a huge fan of reading to kids every day and have them read to you. Even in Preschool and Kindergarten, the kids should be given books to understand the concepts behind books. Books have a title, author, illustrator. Books are made up of letters, words, sentences, etc. The book has a meaning. As you can see there is a lot of concepts a child has to grasp before actually reading the words. Starting in kindergarten, I am a fan of using phonics to teach kids to read. Even if kids can write the letters they hear in a word, that's better than nothing. For the words that kids should know by sight, I like to do flash cards.
