About James

For the past two years I have been a Social Studies Educator and Teach For America Corps member in Detroit. Through training and interaction with other staff, administration, faculty, and students there have countless opportunities to develop skills related to instructing and advising a diverse learning community. I have tutored and differentiated instruction to appeal to many scholars who are learning English as a second language.

I have recently moved back from Michigan to New Jersey where I intend to keep doing what I am most passionate about. My goal is to gain valuable work experience in a new setting that will allow me to sharpen my skills as an educator, in hopes that one day all scholars will be able to obtain an excellent education. Please reach out with any questions, comments, or suggestions. As a teacher I am still on the journey we call education!

After I had earned my teaching degree I took a job as a Teacher's Aide. During this experience I worked both individually and in a classroom setting with scholars learning English as a second language. I took these skills and applied them to my instruction in Detroit's traditionally Hispanic neighborhoods where many of our scholars were learning English as a second language. Due to their tremendous dedication and hard work, these scholars saw tremendous growth in their written and verbal English abilities.

I graduated Rider University as a member of both the History Honors Society and the Education Society while actively involved in the University's History club where I have acted as a judge during New Jersey's "History Day." During my undergrad I volunteered as a museum employee at the National Guard Militia Museum of New Jersey. As a teaching professional I have taught Economics, Civics, World History, and United States History with a great passion for all the humanities. Outside the classroom I had the privilege of working with award winning students during the Michigan Youth and Government competition where scholars had the privilege to apply their knowledge of Civics and Government.

Kindly reach out and I would love to chat!
