About Shelley

My objective in elementary education/special education is to educate students using a combination of sound curriculum, mentoring, data-driven instruction, liberal arts, and my experiences working with children of various ages, ethnicities, races, and social backgrounds in order to provide the students with a solid foundation and knowledge base required for academic success and proficiency.

I am a Reading Specialist for the state of Pennsylvania. I teach pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, first, and second grade emotional support.

I am a special education educator which means I can accommodate and modify all subject areas. I also teach grades K-12th in the summer as the Extended School Year Teacher.

I currently teach phonics in my classroom using a mix of phonics-first and whole word learning. I have done studies using the kid writing program and interactive writing.

I am flexible when it comes to my work schedule after 3:30. I enjoy teaching and find learning to be an experience and an adventure. I am also trained in a number of behavioral interventions and modifications.

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.

ADHD

I currently work at a partial hospitalization program that works with children who have moderate to severe behavioral and emotional difficulties such as ADHD, ODD, Mood disorder, Conduct Disorder. bipolar disorder, and so on. I am trained in Safe Crisis Management, Life space Crisis training, sanctuary therapy training, and am currently being training in teacher child interaction therapy.

I graduated Wilkes University with a Reading Minor and then received my graduate degree in Reading with a Reading Specialist Certification.
