My name is Gaelle T. I started teaching in September of 2000 in New York City public schools. Although I took a couple of years off to nurture my child, teaching called my name again in 2005 while living in Texas. I have since been an English and Language Arts teacher with the Houston Independent School District. I have had a great deal of success working in my district. My students have grown to become efficient and life-long readers. I believe in a painless and simple approach to both teaching and learning: Lots of fun and rigorous activities; a variety of interesting challenging and relevant strategies; and taking a personal interest in each child's interests, gifts, abilities, and skills, beyond the subject or discipline. After all, children don't care how much you know, until they know how much care. Thank you so much for reading this. I look forward to making a difference in your child's life.
Ms. Gaelle T. Hello,
My name is Gaelle T. I started teaching in September of 2000 in New York City public schools. Although I took a couple of years off to nurture my child, teaching called my name again in 2005 while living in Texas. I have since been an English and Language Arts teacher with the Houston Independent School District. I have had a
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.
I was a certified Generalist teacher for grades K-6 in New York City for several years. I taught math, English, reading, social studies, and science. Currently, I am a certified teacher in the state of Texas in ELA/Reading for grades 4-8. I have had a total of nine years in the classroom. In that time, I have taught every subject for students in grades K-8. Therefore, I am more than qualified to take on this task. Thank you.
I have been teaching since the Fall of 2000. Although I took a few years off to raise my daughter, I eventually left New York City and moved to Texas to return to the classroom in the Fall of 2005. I have not left since that time. During my tenure in New York, I was certified as a Generalist. Therefore, I taught all subjects, including speech. However, here in Texas, I hold a current certification in ELA/Reading. I have had this specialty since 2008. Under this certification, speech is a module on which I concentrate with my students. For many years now, my students have gone on to take part in school-wide debates, school campus politics, and other activities involving public speaking.
As a certified teacher with nearly ten years of experience, it is crucial that students be taught ways to retain information. In my practice, I use Cornell-note strategies, graphic organizers, and questioning techniques to assist students with study skills. In addition,my students are also taught content-specific vocabulary terms which help them to target a particular learning goal. Finally, teaching students to be organized will help improve study habits. Thank you!
As a current Texas certified teacher, I have received countless training in helping students prepare for the now STAAR test. I have learned the format and breakdown of the test for grades 4-8. I have many strategies and tools that students can use on the reading and writing portion of the test. I am able to furnish my resume along with recommendations from my principal, appraiser, and district.
