I am a certified teacher with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education, and a Masters of Education degree in Reading and Language. I have over six years of experience as an elementary school teacher. I am an enthusiastic, highly motivated, and creative individual who is passionate about the teaching profession.
My mission is to create a learning environment that is challenging, yet nurturing and encouraging, so that all students can reach their maximum potential both academically and personally. I strive to vary my teaching style to meet the learning needs of individual students, and am adept at developing and implementing lessons that are motivating and reflective of student interests. I have received excellent performance reviews for my ability to develop multi-sensory, hands-on lessons that promote reflective learning.
As both a certified Elementary Teacher & Reading Specialist, I am committed to promoting scholastic and personal development by...
1. Identifying students' interests & needs
2. Utilizing a variety of teaching methods to fulfill the diverse needs and abilities of my students
3. Developing problem-solving and critical-thinking skills by presenting challenges that boost self-esteem and performance
