Brooklyn College (Childhood Education)
I am interested in applying for a tutoring position, on the elementary level. As a 2008 graduate of Long Island University, I have student teaching experience on the second and fifth grade level in urban school districts.
Although I have been prepared to be a general education teacher I have become very sensitive to the needs of children with disabilities through my experience with student teaching in an inclusive school. Student teaching in an inclusive school has challenged me to be creative, nurturing and most of all, patient. Also I have created an interdisciplinary unit of study for the second grade about the Brooklyn Bridge that encompassed science, math, writing and social studies. In doing so, I was responsible for identifying NYC and NYS Learning Standards that connect to and support the concepts to be taught. I have had the opportunity to conduct Read Aloud, Reader and Writing workshops and mini math lessons and facilitate small Book Clubs.
As a teacher I have the responsibility to each and every child to design a classroom where each child will have the opportunity to express their ideas no matter where they are from, who they are and what they stand for. I also believe that as a teacher you have to look each student as a whole. Look at them from every angle only then can you to teach them.
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 childs academic experience. I would welcome an interview and hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience I am interested in applying for a tutoring position, on the elementary level.
