Hi, I am Tamara (Tami).

I am currently employed as a substitute teacher working with students at all grade levels and abilities. As a substitute teacher, I have been able to take long term temporary positions in Special Education and Title 1 reading/math classrooms. These two opportunities have led me to the belief that a strong foundation in basic reading and math skills are necessary for children to be successful in school and in life. Many of the curriculums used in schools today move students on to more difficult skills before some students have been able to master the basics. My goals when working with a student is to help them master those basic skills and provide them with the necessary tools for future success.

I graduated with a B.A. in History from Eastern Illinois University. I am certified to teach or have endorsements in the following:
History
Civics/Political Science
English/Language Arts
Social Science
Learning Behavioral Specialist 1 (Special Education Endorsement)

When I am not teaching I am usually working on our farm where we raise registered cattle. Along with the cattle we keep a large vegetable garden and have chickens. I am an avid cyclist and enjoying spending time outdoors.

Addressing problem in both reading fluency and comprehension, made up a large part of my training for a Learning Behavioral Specialist 1 endorsement. In addition, I have spent extended periods working in a Title 1 reading/math classroom and in a Special Education classroom.

Phonics is the foundation for reading and I believe the first ability that should be evaluated when working with students who have difficulties in reading.

My initial certification for teaching was in History and Social Science. In my own academic endeavors, these subjects have been the ones I most enjoy. History should be personal and finding ways to teach students their connection to the past is my primary goal. For students who tend to lean towards math and science, I try to get them to view historical events as steps in a formula.

I would love the opportunity to talk with you and your child about how I may be able to help them with their academic success.
