Bio

I have been a first grade teacher in Catoosa County for 12 years. The past two years I have worked as a first grade intervention teacher. Previous to that, I taught fifth grade one year and was an intervention teacher for a year as well. While I was in college, I worked as a pre-k teacher in a daycare.

I have been a first grade teacher in Catoosa County for 12 years. The past two years I have worked as a first grade intervention teacher. Previous to that, I taught fifth grade one year and was an intervention teacher for a year as well. While I was in college, I worked as a pre-k teacher in a daycare. I would love the chance to work with elementary age students to help bridge the gap that summer can bring. I also enjoy working one-on-one with students. In reading, I believe that children need a mix of sight words and phonics skills to build their reading vocabulary. I have also had training in teaching comprehension strategies and increasing fluency. In math, I use the concrete, representative, abstract mind set. I start with manipulatives, move on to drawing it out, then end with the abstract (pencil/paper). I have a variety of resources that I can pull from to meet each student's needs to help them be successful in the classroom.

Phonics

I have been teaching first grade for 12 years. In my classroom I use the SRA Imagine It reading program which has a very systematic approach to teaching phonics to children. I am able to understand phonetic rules and explain them to children. In my classroom we complete a phonics blending board daily and read books to practice each skill. I can share this with a student that I tutor.
