As a person who works with various groups of people with over 10 plus years of hands on, successful teaching experience, I am confident in my ability and passion to become a positive addition to your child as a mathematics teacher. My highest degree is a master's of education with a specialization in elementary education, technology and special education; however I have teaching experience on the middle school grade level in both suburban and urban school districts. I have taught both mathematics, physical education, and health. I have been afforded the opportunity to serve administrative and coaching duties.
At the present time I am teaching “at risk” students on the middle school mathematical level. This position enables me to provide these students with a “head start” in mastering basic mathematical skills. I am creative, nurturing and most of all, patient. I use effective practices, strategies, and resources to inspire and enrich each student's learning. Direct instruction, workbooks, visual aids, computers, math manipulative, hands-on activities, mini-labs, student-centered discussions, one-on-one tutoring and small-group instruction are used to honor various learning styles, students' needs and goals, as well as to ensure they are active learners. My administrative, teaching and coaching experience has allowed me to develop skills in order to serve as an effective leader, mentor, ambassador and role model towards and for students.
It is my goal to combine my range of experience with my ability to be a compassionate, enthusiastic, intelligent teacher who will make a positive contribution to your child.
