I am a certified elementary education teacher with a master's degree in elementary education. I have experience working with children of all ages inside and outside the classroom. My strength is in reading, writing, phonics and spelling with elementary level children but I have also worked with high school studies on creative writing assignments, as well as college entrance essays. I believe each child has a love of learning and it is the teacher's responsibility to tap into that love through different methods of teaching. It is also important to understand each child's unique learning style and teach respectfully to that. My teaching experience is varied as I have taught in NYC in a Greek private school as well as in the suburbs teaching preschool. I currently teach preschool during the academic year and a kindergarten/first grade program in the summer. I have been a Christian education director as well for ages 4-15. I have worked with many students with English as a second/foreign language when I taught in NYC. I make learning fun particularly with younger students through learning games and activities.

Every day in the classroom, I work on vocabulary with my students by modeling inquisitiveness by modeling when and how to be inquisitive about new words. Poetry is also a wonderful way, in a less intimidating way, to introduce new words to students.
