As a teacher, I specialize in helping struggling young learners who need one-on-one or small group help to advance their reading, writing, and math skills. I love building new materials, but I know it's not everyone's cup of tea. Here on TPT, I share my materials at super affordable prices. I have been a classroom teacher for innovative, multi-lingual programs in the DC Charter School system, DC Public Schools, and the City of San Antonio. I currently teach diverse learners with the Archdiocese of San Antonio.
Children learn best when learning takes place in context, at a developmentally appropriate pace, and with as much fun as possible! Making skill practice more fun and more purposeful encourages in-depth understanding. Project based learning that combines critical thinking and skills practice fills students with purpose and builds enthusiasm and willingness to take on challenge. I am heavily influenced by Montessori, Reggio Emilia, and the Project Approach.
