About Laverne

Dear Parents:

I am a general and special education teacher in Duval County Public Schools. Prior to Duval County Public Schools, I have been a teacher in Maryland at Prince George County Public Schools and in Georgia at Dekalb County Schools. I am a certified- and highly-qualified special education teacher with capabilities of teaching all students with and without special needs in the areas of language arts, math and reading. I have a sincere interest in working with students with intellectual disabilities because they can learn when taught properly. My past experience has been working students with specific learning disabilities (expressive and receptive languages, ADHD/ADD, emotional behaviors, autism). I have had success with all these students achieving academically. I have a masters degree in special education (cross category) and an EdS degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I am familiar with the new Common Core directives for all states.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Georgia and Maryland license in education for grades K through 12. Therefore, I have the ability to teach students on this level. I have taught PreK students in New Jersey for approximately two years before teaching high school.

English

I am a certified teacher in special education, English Language Arts and History. I have an Educational Specialist (half way to possessing a doctorate degree) degree in curriculum and instruction. This degree allows me to design and modify curriculum to address all learning needs and styles. Currently, I am teacher in PGCPS.

Phonics

As a reading interventionist in Duval County Public Schools, I have made tremendous gain in students academically. These gains were made through reading programs such as Barton, Code to the Rode and Iready. Students growth, in some cases, indicate at least one year in most results and two-year growth in a few instances. I tutor students daily in phonological and phoneme awareness with great success.

Praxis

I have passed the Praxis I and Praxis (certification special education). Praxis I consisted of reading, English/Writing and math. I later took the Praxis content area of special education and successfully passed on first attempt.

Special Needs

I am a licensed certified special education teacher and highly qualified in ELA and History in Georgia and Maryland. I am certified to teach all students with disabilities such as: ADD/ADHD, Intellectual Disabilities, Gifted/Talented, Severe and Profound, Ortho Impaired, and Emotional Behavioral Disorders. I teach students in accordance to their learning styles (auditory, visual, tactile and kinestheics).

Study Skills

As a special and general education teacher, I have taught study skills for three consecutive years in Georgia. These classes entail all subject areas which are cross-connected and remediation to content areas. Study skills more less enhance the students' organizational and/or structural skills. Study skills further break down content to enable mastery at a simpler level of learning.
