About Stephanie

Hello to all the eager learners.

My name is Stephanie. I am a life long resident of Staten Island with 14 years of experience in the education field. I have taught in a variety of school settings primarily in grades Pre K thru 3rd grade. I also have worked with students in small group and individual tutoring experiences from grades Kindergarten through high school.

My educational background is in the field of education. While I worked towards completing my bachelor degree in 2000 at New York Institute of Technology, I worked in educational settings in an informal setting. The informal settings allowed me to understand education from a unique perspective. I began teaching in the private sector of the education field as a classroom teacher upon graduation for 3 years before I explored other talents and interests. In the summer of 2005, I began to work towards a Masters in Teaching and Learning with Technology via online education. This afforded me the opportunity to interact with professionals around the country and the differences in our educational programs. I returned to the education in a private sector in 2007 upon completion of my Master’s degree. I have continued to explore the range of my certification as I now have taught at the Pre Kindergarten level for 4 school years.

I am a strong believer in the theory that life long learning is part of the road to success. While 10 years of my experience has been in the classroom at the elementary level, I also have spent time working in educational institutions that believe in the emergent approach to learning for all ages. I get excited about learning and enjoy helping student s succeed and do their best. I establish a rapport with the student’s families and encourage healthy habits for the most benefits of learning. I enthusiastically seek out professional development opportunities that will benefit my classroom. My future endeavors include continuing my formal education with an advanced degree.

While pursuing education and career ambitions I have also worked part time in the retail industry for the past 19 years. While working for a customer driven environment I have learned many life skills that I can apply in a professional workplace. Skills such as patience, understanding, and quick thinking have helped me grow in my understanding of the needs of my students. I enjoy helping people get the most desired outcome and have a great experience while doing necessary duties.

My expertise in computers is an important part of all levels of education in today’s society. Through my previous coursework I have developed many tools to continue using technology as an integral part of the work day. Including teacher tools such as a grade book, and many other teaching aides to help track student’s progress and activity. Students in today’s classrooms use technology as a tool for success. Teaching students to use technology effectively is also a great part of a teachers job.

I base my teaching on the students to provide and emergent rich environment while also getting done what is needed in the curriculum. I really find many opportunities for the students to get engaged in the books they read and ensure they are reading on their level not what the school says is right for their age. It makes me so happy to see students get excited bout reading and find their favorite genre, characters and reading routine.
My performance record suggests creativity, versatility, dependability and perceptibility. My work habits have helped me to develop my organizational skills to capitalize on opportunities throughout the day to be successful.

I would be excited to hear from you so we can go over what needs the students have and develop a great routine to develop enthusiastic learners and future leaders in the community.
