Without hesitation, I will be able to coordinate and plan the student’s learning needs and environment seamlessly.
As lead instructor/co-teacher in high school English classrooms, I’ve mentored students/teachers in the design of differentiated instruction, multi-modal instructional delivery, and modification of classroom instructions addressing student centered needs in all core academic areas. I modified classroom instructions in inclusive settings in reading, writing, and comprehension to meet graduation requirements which prepare students to enter higher education and professional trades.
