As an experienced Paraprofessional, I have managed/assisted the classrooms for Grades K through 6. Rigorous instruction was prepared so all students grew and excelled in their knowledge. My goal: "No child would be left behind."
I have been honored to have worked in various elementary schools in Lake County, IN. These included schools in Crown Point, Dyer, East Chicago Lighthouse Charter, Gary 21st Century Charter, Griffith, Highland, Lake Central, Merrillville, Munster, St. John, Schererville, as well as Westlake Cooperative.
The teachers I supported/filled in for considered me to be organized, dependable, focused, flexible, analytical, trustworthy, determined, caring, and most of all patient. I was recognized by the Lake Central Community School Corporation as being one of the most requested Paraprofessionala by their teachers.
An essential part of my job was to keep parents/guardians informed of their students progress or regression. Most parents worked with me to address their girls/boys issues so they could move forward.
I tutor not only to teach but to allow the students to have fun as well. As an experienced Paraprofessional, I have managed/assisted the classrooms for Grades K through 6.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I am a skilled, established paraprofessional who has supported schools in Crown Point, Dyer, Griffith, Highland, Merrillville, Munster, Schererville as well as charter schools in Gary and East Chicago. Classes included general and extracurricular activities. I worked with the students in small groups or in one-on-one settings. Grades included K-6. I either filled in for a teacher and managed the classroom or assisted the teacher meeting his/her expectations. Teachers called me back to their classrooms due to my diligence to help any student. Lake Central School Corporation advised I was the most called upon Paraprofessional..
Subjects Covered: Math, reading, English composition, vocabulary, and all other subjects of the classes.
(10+ years experience).
After years of experience as an Administrative Assistant working in Corporate America, I did not find the fulfillment I expected in my jobs. Changing my career to education was the best thing I have ever done.
I met the qualification of teaching in the schools by having earned 60+ hours of credit from reputable universities. I have successfully passed my criminal background check.
Throughout my career, I have kept the offices I have worked at operating efficiently (Indiana University, University of Chicago, and others). I was able to do this due to my strong organizational skills. At local public schools and charter schools, I have worked directly with students, teaching them organizational skills and how to manage their homework and scheduling.
