Hello! I am currently a student in a Masters program for Early/Elementary Education at Virginia Commonwealth University. While I am not yet a formal teacher, I have taken classes in Elementary Content and Pedagogy, and have some classroom experience through creating lesson plans, teaching lessons in the classroom to a whole class setting, and to individual students or in small groups.

As a dancer, I had often had an opportunity to teach College and High School aged individuals, but I decided I wanted to be an Elementary teacher when I had taught street dances to younger students at a summer camp. The combination of my own drive to see others grow as critical thinkers and individuals as well as seeing the enthusiasm and focus Elementary students can have led me to see teaching as a career I ultimately wished to pursue. However, I overall felt like the system I had grown up in overall failed me as a student, and I wanted to make a difference and provide opportunities that I did not have myself. Education is certainly changing for the better and I am glad I am able to attend a program in which I can learn effective methods to reach students and help them internalize content and become more focused thinkers.

I have been formally trained in effective teaching methods for elementary mathematics, specifically the inquiry based model, but also other forms of instruction. I am aware of differing ways students reach understandings of content, rather than pure memorization,

I have taken whole classes on Children's Literature and Language Arts. I am aware of effective vocabulary and language skill building practices, such as word sorts, that can help students solidify their knowledge of the English language but also help them become more creative and advanced in their writing.

I am a Master's Student in a Five Year program for Elementary Education. I have observed classrooms at the K, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade levels as well as facilitated lessons. I am aware of State Standards for Elementary Content, but also standards set by national organizations that guide these standards, such as the National Science Education Standards.

Feel free to contact me regarding any questions you may have or my availability. I look forward to hearing from you!
