About Edna

Hello prospective Parent and student!

If you want to catch up in school or move ahead of the pack, I can help you get there. As partners in your learning journey, there is nothing we can't achieve! Take a chance with me. You won't be disappointed! My 15 years of experience as an educator has helped me become well-rounded in both elementary and middle school grades. I believe in providing all students with an education founded on the belief and practice of education’s most important purpose: the molding of inquisitive life-long learners in all aspects of life. Students will learn to be original thinkers and problem solvers for a lifetime.

I am confident that my skills and dedication as an educator will positively impact your academic performance, social/emotional relationships and an overall feeling about the importance of a well-balanced education. Students under my tutelage are also deeply immersed in a culturally rich learning environment that is developmentally appropriate for them in terms of exposure and understanding of the world around them. I have worked with over a three- thousand students over the years, coming from many different walks of life; they have all communicated that their time with me was of high value to them and that they will continue to apply their learning strategies throughout their lives.

Because of my passion for learning and teaching, I am always open and able to implement new and exciting ways to facilitate learning for students. I integrate the arts and different types of games to make learning fun an meaningful. Humor also goes a long way. My goal is to meet a student's needs while still maintaining high expectations. I begin by understanding deficiencies in areas that might impede mastery of new information. I integrate learning so the student can fill in the blanks while still processing new information. I mold and adapt to my students’ needs rather than expect them to adapt to mine.

Integrated curriculum and interdisciplinary learning is deeply embedded in my lesson planning in order to secure that my students, not only succeed with Common Core expectations, but also, the entirety of their lives. As I reflect on my learning and teaching, I realize that I learn as much from my students as they do from me. We are partners in the educational process as none of us are perfect. Their failures are mine, just as their successes are theirs. Therefore, my aim and grit is to always ensure success for my students. We are a team. I listen to their ideas and thoughts to maintain student-centered learning so students are happy and excited to learn on a daily basis and parents feel comfortable and thrilled for their child attitude about learning and and academic growth.

In summation, I have a strong understanding of Pennsylvania Core Standards and am guided by them to design highly stimulating, effective lessons and remediation to maximize student engagement and learning. The intention is to create successful, life-long learners in a student-centered environment. I love what I do for a living; I am passionate about all subjects because I love to learn about just anything and everything! The best thing I like about my work is seeing students I work with succeed and become increasingly confident in their academics as well as their self esteem. If you believe I might be the right fit for your needs please reach out to me so we can make appropriate arrangements. Lastly, thank you for taking the time to read my profile.

Sincere regards,
Edna
