About Jennifer

Currently, I am a second grade teacher. I work with students in whole groups, small groups, and individually to reach and enhance their academic skills, attitude, and knowledge on or above their grade level. I use differentiated instruction to set individualized goals for my students. Last school year, I was a Math and Reading Intervention Specialist at the same school. I planned and delivered instruction to identified students in the classroom, and I taught them in small groups or one on one to help them improve their math, reading, and writing skills. I also made recommendations to teachers on ways to best meet the needs of students and assisted with designing intervention and monitoring response to intervention for students.

As a classroom teacher, unfortunately, teachers cannot always spend as much time as needed with each student. I believe every student needs individual time with an instructor. I have even recommended to some of my students' parents to seek tutoring for their child. When I did this, I would think to myself, "Why can't I tutor?" I would love to help each child reach their full potential, as a tutor. As an intervention Specialist, I was able to work with students individually, and they increased their test scores and formal assessments. Each learner deserves educators who selflessly work hard to use alternative teaching methods and use all measures in building positive teacher-parent-student relationships. I go above and beyond to ensure my students reach their full potential.

I have a Masters in Elementary Education. I am a highly
qualified teacher with a K-6 Elementary Education Certification.

Please contact me, if you want to be challenged and have fun while learning! I will work hard to make certain you'll succeed in school.
