SUNY OF BROCKPORT
In addition to completing my undergraduate degree, and working as a special education assistant teacher in North Carolina for one year, I have had 12 years of full experience working with children with disabilities. I have worked in after-school programs, summer camps, and student taught, where I would work with children on their daily routines and habits. I formed cooperative learning groups, organized projects, lesson plans, and implemented basic learning styles in each lesson. Rubrics and performance assessments helped me establish and evaluate students individually. In order for me to establish good rapport with the families, I would maintain a strong and effective communication and relationship with the parents. I would give them positive feedback on their child’s accomplishments and information on areas that needed extra attention. In order for me to connect with the parents more effectively, I would give me certain strategies that I thought would benefit their child in certain areas and see if that was the type of help they were looking for with their child. Steady communication with parents is key to improve the child’s learning ability.
Ever since I as 14 years old I was interested in helping out others. That’s when I first started to work at Freedom Recreational Services in the summer. I was surrounded by children from 5-21 years of age, who had severe disabilities. I was intrigued and loved sharing my time with them every day. When I was 17 years old, a former teacher expressed her thoughts on how successful I could be as a teacher. Ever since then I never looked back and I started to go to college to become a special education teacher. I started at 14 and used things from around the house to use as projects for the children, now I have used smart boards, and have written lesson plans for basic learning strategies and daily activities. Creating these certain activities with minimal support helped me realize that there are more ways to help our children succeed.
I have the patience and the strategies to help students become successful readers. I've worked on different reading skills from k-12 grade reading levels.
These students are our future and we need to strive to teach them about respect and the importance on learning.
I've been working with children that have special needs for 14 years. It's just something you have to love and be passionate about and I am both of those things.
I love basketball. I've been playing since I was 4 years old. I have been on teams in high school and won 2 championships.
Teaching has been my reason to strive to become successful in my life. My goal is improve ways of learning for all children. Each time I make a child smile, it reminds me it is a smile of accomplishment. I would appreciate your time in discussing further how my skills and experience can meet the needs of your students. Thank you for your time and understanding.
