About Alexis

I am a successful teacher of 6-8th grade special needs students. My students have exceeded their NWEA goals each year since the district incorporated the assessment. I work with each student according to their level needs. I am patient and seek to make the student know their ability to succeed. In my mind each student can make academic progress. I have been teaching/tutoring in this area for over 30 years.

I work with the general education teachers within my school to ensure that I know what is required at grade level. All of my lessons are presented at grade level expectations, scaffolded and modeled. Students are given the opportunity to develop their knowledge by questioning and determining what helps them attain their goals through their individual attempts when completing a task. I have engaged in numerous Professional Developments and courses.

Students are encouraged to develop their reading ability by engaging in vocabulary activities. These activities include teacher selected assignments and internet based programs. The students that I have previously taught have exceeded their district and state expectations when information has been scaffolded, modeled, presented in graphic organizers,tables, and/or charts.

All instruction that I have given since the inception of common core has been aligned with the common core standards. As a Special Education Teacher I have been able to understand and implement instruction based on the teacher expectations related to these standards. Students that I have taught have been successful. They have been able to successfully meet their attainment levels.

I have taught varying grade levels of elementary school, from k-6. This includes general education as well as special education.

Contact me if you are interested in excelling in learning. I have a proven track record in education. I can provide my credentials and accomplishments.
