About Denise


Miss C., MSW

Relevant Background:
Howard County Public School System, Fairfax County Public School System:

Working as a Substitute Teacher, under the supervision of the School Administration,, I instruct elementary school students (K-6 during the absence of the regular teacher. I make every effort to maintain a professional attitude toward their work and support the mission and goals of the school system. My specialty is working with Special Education students (K-6), with a focus on Language Arts, Science, and Spelling. While I am currently employed routinely, on an as needed basis, with the Howard County Public School System,I previously taught 3rd grade as a Long-term Substitute Teacher (6 months) for the the Fairfax County School System. I hold both a BA and Masters Degree from Howard University, and I have acquired several hours towards a second masters (MBA) in Healthcare Administration.

Being a Substitute Teacher requires that I follow the lesson plans left for me by the regular teacher and ensure that all assigned work is completed. It involves using materials and resources left for me and relaying in writing information concerning the day's activities. I especially like working with students with special needs, which requires knowledge of and use of behavioral plans, and knowing what to do in emergency or unusual situations.

My love of teaching has stimulated an interest on my part in performing this service as a Tutor. So, if you are in need of a tutor who is dependable, and dedicated to ensuring student growth and success, I could be just the person your looking for.

As an experienced social worker I am eligible to sit for the clinical social work examination (LCSW-C).I have studied extensively for this examination over the past eight months in preparation.

In each case behavioral treatment plans were developed and incorporated in class courses.

As part of my elementary teaching experience I have helped students develop good study habits.
