About Derek

My name is Derek B. I am dual certified in Childhood and Special Education grades 1-6 and received my Master of Professional Studies from Manhattanville College in August 2011.

I have a wide range of experiences in both elementary and special education. Currently, I am a 2nd and 3rd grade special class teacher at the John F. Kennedy Magnet School in the Port Chester School District. I provide both English Language Arts and Mathematics instruction in a push-in and pull-out model. I instruct students with the Common Core ELA and Mathematics. In addition to that, I use Reading A-Z, Read Works, Wilson, and Fundations for supplementary ELA intervention.

My field work experiences have also shaped who I am as a teacher. For example, I worked in a K-2 resource room guiding students with ELA instruction through Orton Gillingham multi-sensory approaches. In addition to that, I worked in a 2nd grade 8:1:1 self-contained classroom assisting students with reading and writing workshop. In this experience, I helped students with the Wilson Fundations and the Fountas and Pinnell guided reading programs. This enabled students build their phonological awareness, reading fluency, and comprehension skills. Additionally, I assisted 4th and 5th grade students with the daily general education curriculum as I incorporated differentiation into many of my lessons. I have worked in many capacities preparing students for the ELA, Math, and Science NYS Common Core exams. Collectively, these experiences broadened my expertise in helping students think critically while at the same time; develop strategies to do well on the state exams.
