Dear future students,

My name is Carmen and I have been an English teacher since 2001. I started my career as an ESL teacher for Romanian students. Since 2006 I have been a high school English teacher in DE, USA. I have been teaching students of all levels from 9 to 12 grade.

Currently, I teach mainly sophomores and juniors preparing them for PSAT, SAT and Advanced Placement language and composition. During the summer, I teach summer school where I motivate students who struggle with reading and writing. I work with students with a 504 plan, students with different disabilities, students who are not motivated or students who are willing to go above and beyond.

I also work with adults or college students who need some guidance in writing, reading comprehension and public speaking skills. I mentor teachers in the district where I work and I love what I do.

I believe in every student and throughout my teaching career, I have never met a student who has not made even the slightest progress. My favorite part about teaching is seeing students succeed, discover their voices as writers, become better and better readers.

Another passion I have is public speaking. I have a Masters in Public Speaking/ Public Relations and Communication. I enjoy seeing students get self confidence as speakers and presenters. It is such an essential skill in the 21st century.

I am here to help you and I am looking forward to working with you.

Carmen.
