I have worked as an elementary teacher, teaching all subjects and as a middle school and high school teacher with a focus in English Language Arts. Additionally, I have experience in administration.
Be Proactive! Be Solution-Oriented! EMBRACE Universal Designs for Learning! Classroom management,culture, and climate must be CONDUCIVE for LEARNING or LEARNING WILL NOT OCCUR!
-Highly Effective Annual Ratings -Lead Pedagogy Instructor -Classroom Management Lead -Teacher Mentor Etc.
I have earned a Bachelor of Arts in Education and Literature, a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership, Supervisor and Principal Certifications, and additional educational curriculum training at Princeton University in Global Studies. Furthermore, I have SIOP (Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol) training which addresses the unique needs of our bilingual student population.
I have been afforded the opportunity to teach in both urban and suburban school districts. I've worked with gifted and talented students as well as those with special needs. Although I am monolingual and therefore only speak English, I have been placed in classrooms where I was responsible for facilitating the learning of ELL students who spoke only Spanish and Portuguese. I did this with no support. I am proud to say that throughout my career, I have succeeded in the areas of pedagogy and classroom management with each and every experience. In order to succeed, I have had to learn some "Tricks" and "Tips" along the way. I pray that the resources you find in my store will help you on your journey the way they have helped me on mine. :)
