I am married with two adult children and one grandchild. Before getting my Early Childhood degree, I worked in the medical field for three years and before that I was in banking. I have been teaching for 24 years. I have taught grades 1 - 3. Currently, I teach 1st grade in Long County. I especially love teaching reading. It is very enjoyable for me to watch non readers become readers.
It is my belief that reading opens the door for all other content learning. If you can't read, then it is nearly impossible to learn grammar, science, social studies, or history. Reading is my main focus.
I completed my masters degree in Reading specialty.
Spelling and writing complement Reading and it is important to be a well rounded student.
I have worked with non or limited English speaking students who did not know the alphabet or phonetic sounds of the letters and have seen them grow tremendously.
I am available through the summer most afternoons.
Gilda hasn’t set a schedule.
