I strive to make all students successful, no matter the subject or individual concern. I believe that all students have the ability to succeed and I work with students on a variety of strategies through hands-on lessons that encourage independent learning and growth in subjects. It is very important that activities encourage learning and I strive to provide hands-on activities that help students apply the knowledge that we are working with. I also believe it is important for students to be able to reciprocal teach the information to showcase their understanding.
I graduated with a Bachelor's in Education, as well as a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction for Reading. This background and experience allows me to tailor my instruction for the specific needs of elementary readers, whether they struggle with phonics, fluency, or comprehension. I have had much success in my own third grade classroom implementing strategies to support success for all learners.
For math, it is important to use a lot of manipulate materials to help enforce skills that allow understanding for math concepts. In my classroom I use fraction bars, fake money, charts, graphs, and small beans or other materials to help students 'touch' math and make it applicable to them.

I work in a Title I school with a mainstream classroom that includes students with 504 plans, including but not limited to ADD/ADHD. I have several students in my classroom this school year with ADD/ADHD and have worked closely with these students and their parents to provide a systematic approach to their individualized needs for all academic concerns and needs. Most of the time, students need shorter learning sessions with praise and rewards to help intrinsically motivate them to work with focus.
As a current third grade teacher, certified in the state of Florida to teach elementary aged students K-6, I strive to help students succeed in all capacitiesL academically, physically and socially. I hold a Bachelor's in Education as well as a Master's in Reading.
I have a Master's degree in reading and took comprehensive courses on how phonics and phonemic awareness work together to assist development in reading. In teaching third grade students to master fluency with accuracy, many phonics activities are administered in the classroom to help student achieve success. I work with students in small group settings to understand blends of letters and the sounds that they produce to assist with spelling and reading proficiencies.
