I am a twenty-eight year old young adult. I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Bradley University. I also have my Illinois Professional Educators License with endorsements in early childhood and special education.

My focus is helping pre-kindergarten aged students be prepare for kindergarten. This includes phonics (learning letter sounds), identifying and naming colors, numbers, basic shapes, and letters.

I have over four years of experience working in private, public, and religious childcare settings. I am currently employed as monolingual general education teacher for preschool children (3-5) at Carman-Buckner Elementary school since 2015. I was a Bilingual Preschool teacher at the same school. My students were native Spanish speakers ages 3-5. I have been taking care of children (ranging from birth- middle school) for over ten years. Helping children grasp the tools for successes is my passion.

I also graduated Summa Cum Lade. I have learned skills needed to be successful even with a learning disability. As a result, I teach using a variety of methods. I am very patient, responsible, and professional.

Public Speaking

Public speaking is an art. It is one of the most common fear that people have. There are many different types of speeches. Persuasive, information and demonstration speeches. Every 10 seconds it is best to make eye contact. Careful attention to posture, volume, rate, pitch, and hand gesture are important factors in speech making. When giving a public speech you need to start with an attention getter. Then you must preview your main points of your speech. Transitions should be prepared when going form one topic to the next. When ending the speech you need to review your strong points and end strong.

Microsoft Windows is a software the allows a person to create blank documents or publishing documents like a brochure. I use Microsoft word for all my papers and assignments in college.

Phonics,

Phonics

My undergraduate degree focused on Early Childhood Education. I took several courses about how children learn to read, methods to test reading levels, comprehension ability, importance of exposing children to print early. Children begin by learning that print carries meaning, each letter has a name, each letter has a sound or phonemes, put the letters together to make words, put the words together to make sentences. I believe in teaching phonemic awareness or ability to hear smallest sound of words and phonological awareness that words are made of a variety of sounds are building blocks for reading. Phonics encourages sound out words by they way they are spelled. An emphasis on recognizing phonemes and digraphs, blends, and trigraphs may eliminate problems because it helps them associate letter with sounds. When children are able to decode they will be ready to begin reading.

Study Skills

I believe the best way to study is by studying in advance. I believe students need to take breaks. In order to do well on tests a person must learn how to take good notes and read textbooks. This involves pulling out the main idea. I believe making notecards,color coding, creating mnemonic devices, or making up a song are excellent methods of studying.
