About Patricia

My decision to become a teacher came due to my love for helping others and for the love of my children. When both of my children were diagnosed as ESE I knew what I was meant to do as a career. I am a certified ESE K-12, PreK-3 teacher. I have my Reading and ESOL endorsements as well and am in the process of adding the Autism Endorsement to my current certificate. I have worked for the University of Miami at the Linda Ray Center for their Birth -2 program. There I was the lead teacher for my classroom where I worked with high risk and drug exposed children addressing literacy and gross/fine motor skills. I have also worked for and am currently employed with MDCPS. I am the Math Resource teacher for 2nd and 3rd grade and also assist in support facilitation for 2nd -4th grade in all subjects. I previously worked as a full time PreK 1/2 day teacher in the reverse mainstream classroom and as a self contained ASD teacher. Both positions were for covering the assigned teachers on maternity leave. I have over 7 years teaching experience. I enjoy working with the Elementary grade levels. My favorite subjects are Reading, Writing, and Art. I chose Education as my career because I wanted to make a difference. I feel this is where I was meant to be and enjoy every moment and the challenges that come with it!

I have thought elementary math for over 5 years and within that time I have had many students move up one or grade levels in math within a school year. I am keen on relating math to real life and use various strategies to enable a child to reach their full potential.

I have thought reading for many years and enjoy this subject. I have my Reading Endorsement along with my other certifications. Since reading is the foundation of all other subjects, it is extremely important that all students have mastery in reading skills in order to be successful in all areas.

As an educator, it is important to have a strong foundation in spelling and legible handwriting. I use various spelling activities to teach students how to successfully spell.

Phonics is important in order to identify and read words. I feel that combining phonics and whole word instruction works best for overall success.

I can't wait to hear from you and schedule a time to start you on your way to educational success.

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 am a highly qualified certified ESE K-12 teacher with PreK-3 Subject Area along with my Reading and ESOL endorsements. I have completed all necessary courses to add my Autism Ensorsement to my current certificate. I am the Specific Learning Disability teacher in the Resource Math Room for 2nd and 3rd grade in the MDCPS system. We follow common core and the Florida State Standards. I have taught PreK thru 5th grade in all subjects. I have taught varied exceptionalities throughout my years as a teacher. I enjoy working with all types of students and enjoy seeing the progress each individual makes and strives for.

Handwriting

I am a certified ESE K-12, PreK-3 teacher. Handwriting is an important concept to learn. Students need to be able to have proper letter formation, spacing, and understanding of letters and how they form words. I use various strategies to help with mastery in this subject.

Phonics

I am a certified ESE K-12, PreK-3 teacher. Phonemic awareness is a very important concept and component to understand and master. Being able to break apart and chunk words, understanding how to pronounce letter dia graphs and blends will enable a student to become a great reader. I use phonics and whole word instruction to teach students the basics of word recognition.
