Jaime:

After 12 years of teaching in the inner city of Newark, NJ, I have moved to Dover, VT with my daughter. While close to New York city, I received my master's in English from Columbia University as part of a cohort of 12 in-service teachers working towards a Master's in English. After finishing my master's, I looked for academic stimuli and new curriculum ideas through joining and participating in the Dodge Poetry Foundation at readings, events, curriculum planning meetings, and judging. I have also worked on my personal pursuits and am a published poet as well as participating artist in art shows and readings. In 2013, I completed my second master's in Special Education from Montclair State University. At the end of my time in NJ, I began to teach English at Brookdale Community College.

During my time at East Side High School, I have been privileged to participate in a diverse population. Being an English teacher at the only bilingual school in Newark has allowed me to experience classes that include students of different cultural and social backgrounds, different races, genders, ages, sexual orientations, languages, disabilities and abilities. These differences have created challenges for planning and preparation, for almost all students in the classroom need adaptations. However, these challenges have made me into a more innovative teacher, finding ways to grade openly and foster an environment that brings out all different aspects of my diverse population. In the end, I benefited from more opportunity to grow and learn about student populations.

As a teacher at East Side High School, I taught creative writing, journalism, public speaking, English for Nursing students, Freshman English, Sophomore English, Junior English, Senior English, Honors English, HESPA review, Drama, Poetry, and Literature courses. I also mentored for the softball team and was the chess coach for many years.

During the past three years at East Side High School, I have worked with Mrs. R., an inclusion teacher in my freshman English classes. Mrs. R. and I discussed the modifications for students constantly, which enabled me to learn a plethora of information on the inclusion process and begin to understand the needs of inclusion students. I worked with Mrs. R. on student IEP’s, helped to create needed tutoring and mentoring programs, and worked on adapting lessons. Mrs. R.’s compassion and dedication to her students made me realize the importance of understanding learning disabilities to enhance student learning. To better serve my students, learning and sharing new ideas has been a main focus during my career. For this reason, I have constantly attended school and training programs as well as collaborated with peers.

Education is key to success and I enjoy helping all my students reach their maximum potential.

Excellent tutor.

Jaime tutors 2 of my kids, (11th and 12th grades) and we are very happy. Jaime is very professional, a great teacher, and teaches each kid according to his needs. Jaime insisted my son will send her his essays in advance, by email, in order to be more efficient at class, and accommodated different hours, according to the kids' needs. We are lucky we met her.

Great Tutor

Jaime has been helping our 5 year old son learn to play chess. She is incredibly patient, always prepared for the lesson and is great with kids. She provides good guidance/advice on how to reinforce the lessons in between sessions and provides good updates after each lesson.
