About Dawn

I am currently a Third Grade Teacher for the New York City Department of Education at PS 022Q in Flushing, where I am working with a class of 26 ESL students. This has been an excellent opportunity for me, as I have really developed my skills as a teacher and participated in ongoing training in the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project. Additional experience as a Substitute Teacher for the Central Islip School District and Brentwood Union Free School District has been equally rewarding and contributed significantly to my growth as an educator. My background includes planning multisensory lessons that are child centered and differentiated, using scaffolding, prompts and data-driven instruction to meet each student’s needs. Students are motivated and engaged in all subject areas and every lesson is aligned with the New York State Common Core Standards to ensure that children are equipped with the tools needed to become successful contributors to society.

My lifelong dream has always been to be an educator and make a difference in the lives of the children I teach. There is no other profession that can touch a life so profoundly and having a positive impact on a child's life is the greatest reward a teacher can experience. There is no greater sense of achievement for me than to see a child grasp a concept that I am teaching and become excited and motivated to further explore and to learn. As a teacher, it is one of my primary goals to ensure that each and every accomplishment is celebrated, thus giving my students a strong sense of pride while building their self-esteem.

Math lessons should be visual and hands on. I use manipulatives to help students grasp the lessons and pass the Common Core Math Exams!

Each student possesses unique abilities. I will cater my lessons to the individual students needs. Whether that be guided reading instruction, shared reading, and shared writing. Each lesson should be scaffolded so that the child better understands. I do this by using prompts, thinking maps, and graphic organizers.

Last year I taught a class of 26 ESL students and they all passed the Math and ELA Tests! I can prepare your child for the ELA test by using strategies that really work and help them to answer the questions on the day of the Test! I use sample exams and review skills and concepts needed.

I have excellent rapport with children. I am motivated to inspire students to learn for years to come!

If you are looking for a teacher that believes in rigorous instruction and will motivate you to go above and beyond, please contact me!
