TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Debra Buffington-Adams is a vetran foreign language teacher of over 20 years. She taught for 10 years in the Chicago Public School system and remaining years in the south suburbs of Chicago. After retiring from teaching in the classroom, Debra turned her attention to creating after-school reading intervention materials and software. She uses foreign language teaching methods to drill phonics with music and games. You can see her web based teaching materials on her website www.newheightsineducation.com

MY TEACHING STYLE

Ms Buffington-Adams adheres to the theories of multiple intelligences (Howard Gardner) and individual learning styles (Karl Jung). She believes in reaching to the mindset and urban cultural background of children in order to teach them. Her current focus is urban education and creating ways to reach at risk children who are not responding to traditional methods of reading intervention. She uses foreign language teaching strategies to engage students in intense phonics instruction, drills and blending games.
