I was a migrant teacher for two years. Then I became a Reading Specialist for five years at a Title 1 elementary school in Michigan. After that I taught ESOL students at different elementary schools. Since then I was a READ 180 instructor for 7th and 8th graders. Next I taught fourth grade for two years and I am currently in my third year as a first grade teacher.This is where I developed and implemented my poetry to teach phonics.
My teaching style usually consists of kinesthetic activitities and visual aids.
Yet to be added
Received teaching education at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I have Reading and ESOL endorsements on my teaching certificate.
I have published two books called "Makini the Impala with a Crooked Horn" and "Video Gamer Vinnie". When I was a Reading Specialist I created Phonic workshops for teachers and instructional support staff. I instructed different techniques of a phonics program and modeled lessons in classrooms for teachers.
