Teaching children to read, write, and solve mathematical problems is my passion. I am a professionally certified Early Childhood and Childhood teacher. I have 11 years of teaching experience, including 6 years spent teaching 3rd grade. I am currently in my 4th year as a kindergarten teacher. My master's degree is in childhood education with a literacy emphasis. I have proven successes in helping struggling students learn to read and spell, as well as improve upon their existing reading skills, such as decoding and comprehension. Additionally, I am confident in my writing instruction across many genres from narrative to expository.
Recently, I have done a good amount of professional development in mathematical instruction. I have implemented best practices in my classroom of early learners, with great success. As an elementary teacher, I am also comfortable teaching science and social studies content, in addition to reading, writing and math. I enjoy working with all types of learners. My 3rd grade classroom was a special education inclusion room, where I worked closely with a special education teacher learning many methods and techniques to best meet the needs of my students. In addition to being a teacher, I have 2 children ages 14 and 17 which has provided me with great insight into child development, motivation, and overall learning styles of kids at different stages of childhood.
