About Amber-Joy

I am T4 certified in Early Childhood Education (K-5) with a Bachelor's Degree from Spelman College (Cum Laude). I attended Johns Hopkins University for one year to study Severe Disabilities and Autism (no degree earned).

I am a passionate educator. I love the connections I am able to build with students. I have worked with children who are Mexican, Guatemalan, Peruvian, Honduran, Dominican, African-American, Chinese, Indian, and Caucasian. Every year of teaching, as a lead teacher, I've had at least three languages represented in my classroom. In diverse settings it is important for educators to understand the cultural traditions of each child represented in the classroom so all students are celebrated. One year I had holiday greeting cards made for the students and their families. The card said Happy New Year in English, Spanish, and Tamil. The Tamil speaking parents were so appreciative, because their Indian culture was not represented in our school at all, but in my classroom students knew about Indian food, traditional attire, and dances.

I am an advocate of second language learners learning English while maintaining fluency of their native language. I have a holistic approach to teaching English as a second language. Language should be taught in the natural environments of students (home, playground, grocery store, library, school) so that language is purposeful.

I am knowledgeable of the Common Core standards because I follow them everyday as a full time Kindergarten teacher.
