I have my New York State permanent certification in Elementary Education, with an extension in English Language Arts - grades 7-9.

I have over twelve years experience in the classroom as a full time teacher, as well as a few years as a substitute. During my years in the classroom, I gained experience in grades kindergarten through eight. I designed and implemented lessons in all core subjects, as well as assessed the students' progress. I am aware of the common core standards and eager to help student achieve success.

Words that parents used to describe my teaching were : dedicated, knowledgeable, positive. Students described me as understanding, fun, and fair. Principals described me as passionate about students' learning, and progressive. While I loved being in the classroom, I am currently not teaching because I chose to be a stay at home mother.

Phonics

I spent 6 years in a First Grade classroom teaching Reading, which was a phonics based program. At this time Phonics was taught in isolation as well as in context. We identified sounds as we heard them and saw them. Reading, writing, spelling and listening were the means to achieving success in phonics.

Throughout my years teaching, I devoted time to helping students develop study skills. I often demonstrated ways to sort and organize information by using outlines, diagrams, foldables, and index cards. In addition, I would create rhymes, songs and mnemonics.
