TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I started as a K-3 Literacy Tutor through a 1720 hour AmeriCorps service program at the best elementary in Colorado. I transitioned and worked with all grades K-5 in various capacities as a 1st grade Para classroom assistant, helping struggling students with math, reading, and writing, an after school program aide, and as a private reading and writing tutor. Currently, I am teaching ESL online to students in China. I specialize in creating engaging elementary literacy resources, mostly in the form of crazy stories. I have self-published eight of my themed reading comprehension packs into PAPERBACK AND E-BOOKS! If you need to contact me about my products, please email DMWLewis@gmail.com

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to teach with lots of enthusiasm to get students excited and interested in subjects that used to bore me in school. I incorporate as much creativity into my resources as possible.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have my Master's of Science in Sport Marketing. Completed my Praxis II in 2015.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My ultimate goal is to instill the fiery PASSION of reading and writing into my students, filling them with confidence they need to succeed. Laughroom Literacy's motto is "Read it with a Smile!" I believe that every story read by kids should be read with a smile. Whether that story makes the student laugh, make them feel fuzzy inside, or just entertains them in general, my goal is writing stories that make them keep coming back for more. Literacy time in class shouldn't ever be a chore, but unfortunately, for struggling readers it can be the toughest part of the day. There are too many students behind grade level for so many different reasons. I certainly hope that long term my work can make a difference in as many classrooms as possible. If I can make a teacher's job a little easier, then I'm happy. If I've inspired a student's newfound passion for reading, then I've done my job.
