I taught 15 years as a Head Start State Preschool teacher / Site Program Supervisor with my National Child Development Credential. 6 years as a Licensed Child Day Care Provider, 5 plus years as a Preschool Owner and Director , 14 years as a Multi-Subject Elementary teacher, Literacy Coach, Academy English Mastery Program Facilitator, UCLA Mentor Teacher, Teacher Growth and Development Leader, CCSS School Site Leader and Workshop Facilitator.
My teaching style is a mixture of Student-Centric, Facilitator and Authority Model. In Student-Centric my focus is heavily applied on each particular student, as every student learns in a different capacity. I do spend time with each individual student. As a facilitator, I place the impetus on students to complete assignments individually or in groups as I trust students to help their peers. Lastly, as an Authority Model I demonstrate certain behaviors that are beneficial to the students. Instruction is provided in a similar fashion but I model the behavior I expect from students.
I have an A.A.Degree in Early Childhood Education, with a National Childhood Development Credential, B. A. Degree in Behavioral Science with a minor in Psychology, M.A. Degree in Elementary Education, M.A. Degree in Educational Administration, and a Program Director's Permit in Early Childhood Education.State Licensed Foster home provider.
