About James

As a PhD in the field of education and as an elementary school teacher for more than 10 years I feel I have a lot to offer. My background in education began with teaching at an inner-city charter school in Phoenix, Arizona, that allowed me the opportunity to work with a diverse student population. This diverse student population allowed me to work with students from across the world, with the heaviest concentration of students coming from Mexico. Working with students from Mexico intrigued me enough to leave my job and become a teacher at an American School in the state of Sonora, Mexico. After four years of teaching in Mexico I decided to move back to the states and take what I have learned and apply it to educating students back in the states.
During the two years in Phoenix, Arizona I became the lead fourth grade teacher as well as the Teacher of the Year. In Mexico, I taught every grade from 3rd – 6th grade, most of the time one grade level in the morning and another grade level in the afternoon. During my 3rd year at the school, I became the English coordinator and teacher overseeing the English teachers. In Greenville, South Carolina I was hired as a 4th grade teacher and during my 4th year of teaching I became the lead team member for our grade level. I offer knowledge of diverse student populations, Common Core knowledge and implementation, skills in various reading programs, knowledge and experience with online learning, and excellent verbal communication skills.
