About Felicia

I am currently teaching Early Childhood Education. As of 2016 I have eight years of teaching experience! I have experience with every age group from infancy through fourth grade. I attended Northern Illinois University and graduated with two degrees; Bachelors of Science in General Studies, Masters in Early Childhood Education.

In addition to my two degrees I also have a teachers certificate, endorsement in Special Education, as well as an endorsement in English as a Second Language. I enjoy teaching because I enjoy interacting with students. Some friends and I started a tutoring ministry a few years ago and that is when I discovered my passion for working one on one as a teacher. There is nothing like the knowledge one can gain from individual instruction that is tailored to their needs! I enjoy getting to know my students and working with their families on individual education plans and creating ways to help students to succeed!

English is one of the hardest languages to learn because there are so many rules to remember. Learning proper grammar and good reading skills come from practice. While teaching Special Education I taught many students how to read and write. One school year each of my students were two grade levels behind with reading, by the end of the school year everyone was caught up.

When working in the school district I became very familiar with the Common Core curriculum and education goals created by the Illinois State Board of Education.

As a child I struggled with handwriting, I can still remember going to tutoring specifically for handwriting. As a teacher I am forced to have perfect handwriting. Students who are learning to write learn from modeling and examples. If I am not forming letters correctly my students will not form their letters correctly. I am always conscious of the way in which I am writing because it is important that I set a great example for my students.

Phonics is my favorite subject! I have a passion for working with students on learning to read or improving their reading skills. At my job I pull students aside for individual phonics instruction! I was just told by a parent as well as my supervisor that I am an excellent phonics teacher.
