About Norma

I have 20 years experience teaching children ages 5 to 12. I have home schooled my sons for four years before they reentered private education and went on to be honor students in college. I also have experience teaching English Language Learners.

I love to teach reading and incorporate interests of the child into the literature they are learning. I am a public school teacher and very familiar with common core standards as well as expectations of students at grades K - 5.

I enjoy working with students individually as I can meet them where they are academically and take them as far as they are willing to work and go.

I have taught elementary math for 20 years, using different strategies and programs. I am currently working as a Early Intervention math teacher for first graders. I understand the common core standards and ways to use manipulatives and oral language so that students may gain an understanding of mathematical concepts. I have high expectations and insist on students being able to explain their thinking orally and in writing.

I have ESOL and gifted endorsements and am presently an ESOL teacher in an elementary school. I believe in building vocabulary so that students may become better readers and writers. I am choosy about the books and literature I have students read, as I believe quality of the story is extremely important. I search to encourage young children to love reading and understand all the benefits it can give. I WILL find an area of interest for a child and provide books on their level for enjoyment.

I have currently been teaching the past 11 years in public education and have seen the shift to common core standards. I am able to search the standards and assess students to find areas of weakness. I understand the importance of common core in the classroom as this is what drives the lessons and assessments.

I love teaching and know this is the reason I am alive! Children fascinate me when working in small groups or individually with their thinking and explanations of how they obtain an answer. I do not use worksheets but use direct interaction with the students, which, in my opinion, makes them thrive and enjoy learning. I am flexible with times and days, as I only have four legged children at home. I look forward to meeting new students as the summer approaches.
