About Breeanna

I am currently enrolled in graduate school; seeking my certification in General and Special Education 1-6. I have extensive experience and knowledge working with students both in a general education setting and with students with disabilities in self-contained classrooms. I have been a substitute teacher in the Newburgh Enlarged City School District for four years.

Personal experience with my own son, who has developmental disabilities, has further developed my passion for teaching. I believe all children and students have the ability to continually learn, we just need to find out what grabs their attention and gets them excited. A teacher's enthusiasm and approach to a subject can make a world of difference.

Approved subjects

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.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have worked in many self-contained - special education classrooms throughout my four years of substitute teaching, some of which have been specifically designed for students on the Autism Spectrum. I am currently in the middle of completing a masters degree, to obtain a certification for teaching students with disabilities, and have maintained a 4.0 average. My son is also on the Autism Spectrum and I have worked closely with his therapists and done further research regarding Sensory Processing Disorder. I know that differentiating instruction is very important for all students, especially those with documented disabilities.

Common Core

I have worked in the local school district as a substitute teacher for 5 years and carried out many lesson plans that include the common core curriculum on a daily basis. During my graduate level courses, I also developed lesson plans that were aligned to the Common Core State Standards for math and English-Language Arts.

Elementary (K-6th)

Elementary Education is what I have the most experience with. My degree will certify me in Childhood and Special Education 1-6. During substitute teaching, I most frequently work with this population of students. I have also completed over 100 fieldwork hours with this age group. During this time I have differentiated instruction on a daily basis to address the strengths and weaknesses of each individual student. My strengths are within the Common Core Curriculum approach to teaching in New York State. However, whenever it is necessary, I incorporate more traditional practices and hands on learning to meet multiple learning pathways.

Handwriting

I have worked with many students using the Handwriting Without Tears program in the local school district. Also helped students use low-tech assistive technology to help students strengthen the fine motor skills needed for writing. During my work I have also been exposed to students who need hand-over-hand assistance.

Phonics

Worked with many students who have needed extra phonics help. More specifically, I have developed activities to help students decode words which included blends, dipthongs, and digraphs. Through reading and word work study, students have dramatically increased phonics strength.

Special Needs

I am currently enrolled and almost finished with a masters degree in special education and general education (1-6). I have also worked with students with special needs students with disabilities for the last 5 years in the local district. I also have a four year old son that has Autism Spectrum disorder along with other sensory needs. I love to work with all students to find their unique strengths and abilities.
