My name is Jill and I love to teach. I am currently teaching 5th grade math in St. Tammany Parish. I have been a teacher for six years, and could not imagine doing anything else.
I graduated with a BA in English with an emphasis in creative writing from Texas Tech University. I graduated with my MA in History from Southeastern Louisiana University. I am currently pursuing my second MA in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Kansas. I will complete my degree in December.
I've tutored for over 9 years. I take creative writing classes to keep myself always writing, because that is my one other passion besides teaching. I am certified to teach 1st-5th, but I have also taught college history classes and tutored college English. I strive to always stay current in teaching strategies and the requirements placed on all students. I stay current on the changes with the SAT and ACT tests, and have helped several students bring up their scores.
As a teacher, I have taught all kinds of learners and am very adaptable in creating ways to engage students. I must work just as hard as them to make sure I am doing my job as teacher. I am a hands on teacher and enjoy creating fun activities for my students to learn. If I can't sit through a two-hour boring meeting without getting distracted, I can't expect a child to. I will work until I find a way to help my students learn. After all, I became a teacher to help students.

Dyslexia

Dyslexia

I teach 4th grade, and my school is an inclusion school which means I work with students who have dyslexia everyday. I have four years of experience working with these students. I understand their phonics needs, how repetitions, and other techniques assist them with their struggles. Every child learns differently, that is reinforced everyday when I teach my students.
