TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a highly certified language arts and social studies teacher, and have taught in California, Kansas, and currently North Carolina. I received a BS in secondary English education, and have worked as a language arts teacher in three schools, improving writing test scores by 30% in one year! I have taken additional course work and exams to be highly qualified in secondary social studies as well, a subject I have fallen in love with as a teacher! I am currently taking an unpaid year of leave to stay at home with my now 8 month daughter, Elizabeth. The additional income from this service will be greatly appreciated! As a teacher I strive to appeal to all learners. And I hope you find that many of these lessons and materials reach out to the various learning styles. I appreciate your business!

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a classroom teacher I know first hand that lessons MUST appeal to the different learning styles, and must connect with students' interests, or it will simply be ineffective. I hope that you find all of my lessons and materials to reach your visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I graduated Suma Cum Laude with a 4.0 from Wichita State University, Kansas. I am highly certified in the areas of Language Arts and Social Studies at the secondary level. In one year my scores from the 7th grade writing test helped to improve the overall schools' percentage by 35%. The average had been 55% passing, my students passed by 75%. The second year at the same school, my scores were even better with 85% passing. This was a school with a base population in the inner city Raleigh. I am currently working on my masters degree, and hope to one day be Nationally Certified.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Graduated Suma Cum Laude 4.0 GPA with a BS in Secondary English Education. I have since taken additional course work and exams to add Secondary Social Studies to my certificate. I am currently highly certified in both areas.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am taking 1 year unpaid leave to stay at home with my first child. I greatly appreciate your business! Every little bit of extra income is incredibly helpful to our family! Most of my files are PDF format so they can open on ANY computer. However, some are word or Powerpoint files. If you have problems opening these, I can very easily turn them into PDFs and email them to you. Sometimes Macs have problems with PPT files. Please contact me with questions/concerns at j_elitzin@yahoo.com before posting a negative reply. I'm more than willing to either fix the problem, or contact TPT for a full refund. If you like my work, please provide positive feedback and/or add me to your favorites! THANKS & God Bless!
