About Danica


Bio

I am from the Saipan, an island found in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I have four wonderful children. I can easily adapt to changes and work independently. I am able to juggle multiple priorities and meet deadlines. I am a fast learner. I’ve volunteered in Tinian Elementary School, Tinian High School, and Garapan Elementary School as an AmeriCorps Member before attending college classes.

I am from the Saipan, an island found in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I have four wonderful children. I can easily adapt to changes and work independently. I am able to juggle multiple priorities and meet deadlines. I am a fast learner. I’ve volunteered in Tinian Elementary School, Tinian High School, and Garapan Elementary School as an AmeriCorps Member before attending college classes.

I have been a 2nd grade teacher for four years and 9 months in Garapan Elementary School teaching up to twenty-five students. I’ve utilized data as evidence to student learning and a reflection on my own teaching practice. I create my own lesson plan using the instructional plans provided in a program we use in our school.

I have taught common core during my first 2 years as a 2nd-grade teacher. Our curriculum has changed to Direct Instruction Math. I've used Prodigy and Renaissance Learning to help students enhance their math skills.

I have used guided learning and learning centers. I have used Epic, Renaissance Learning, Starfall, and Lexia in my classroom. I used STAR data as a guide to creating my lesson plans. I keep track of students progresses in reading after every assessment to ensure that each student is doing well and not regressing. When a student regress, I use various intervention such as after-school tutoring and other technology programs.

I have worked with students with Autism, Aspergers, and Learning Disability. I was not given any aide while I worked with students with Special Needs however, this was not a problem with me. Students are often pulled out of my classroom 20% of the time, but the other 80%, the student is with me. It may be difficult, but I've worked with them one-to-one and at the same time work with my general ed. class. My recent student has progressed in Early Literacy, Math, and Reading.

I am here to dedicate my time to help you learn. Like every teacher, it is rewarding to see your student progress and do better in their academics. I'm excited to work with you!
