SUNY Cortland (Master's)
Having completed my Bachelors of Arts in 2012 of History and my Masters of Science in Teaching of Childhood Education at the State University of New York at Cortland, my experience demonstrates numerous qualities of an effective teacher. With my experience in the classroom and my certification in Childhood education I feel I have the proper skills to expand the minds of students. In addition to my teaching skills, I have experience at the high school level tutoring students of hight needs at Ithaca High school.

Having my Masters in Childhood Education has allowed for multiple experiences and efficient training in adapting lessons to meet the needs of students while incorporating Common Core Standards. Furthermore, throughout my teaching I have experience in the New York State Math modules, along side with the English Language Arts Modules.
As an educator I see myself as an influential and important role model of my school and its community. Through course readings, practicum, student teaching experience, and conversations with professors, my ability to educate effectively has vastly increased. I have made positive impressions on the student’s that I worked with. Learning and practicing concepts of differentiated instruction, community building, and collaboration has changed my perspective on lesson planning and creating a positive learning environment for students. Every child has the right to an effective education. My upmost goal is to advocate for my students’ deserved effective education through the skills and abilities I have learned throughout my educational experience.
Literacy proficiency and the development of fundamental literacy skills are now more than in past decades a specific a point of emphasis in early childhood and childhood education as a result of the Common Core State Standards. Language and literacy competence are increasingly linked to assessment of academic achievement of students in early childhood development (Gullo, 2013). These fundamental skills include the development of oral language, phonological awareness, writing, decoding, and alphabet knowledge, which make up the key components of determining the progress of a child’s literacy development. I hold a high emphasis in achieving these goals for all students. With my intensive training in completing my Masters in Childhood Education and my effective teaching practices, I am confident I can expand students overall literacy skills.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
Throughout both my student teaching placements, I held a great emphasis on developing differentiated lesson plans that would engage diverse learners. I educated students in a high needs setting that allowed for the proper experience to educate all learners. Therefore, the modifications and adaptations generated through my differentiated instruction ensure that the needs of students’ diverse learning styles are met. Furthermore, I stressed an importance of developing a strong classroom community, thus creating a safe learning environment where collaboration among peers was a common occurrence. I hold a high importance in generating a student centered learning environment where a safe learning environment is a necessity. Both my cooperating teachers and my supervisor from the Masters of Science in Teaching program complimented me in my ability to collaborate among students along with my collages.
