TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught 1st through 5th grade in both a US and UK curriculum, as well as teaching all grade levels in the computer lab at a Title I school in Georgia, USA. I have taught in two different states in the US - Georgia and New Mexico, as well as teaching in Morocco. Every classroom I've ever taught in has had a high ELL population. I have taught both high income and low-income school students, and find that no matter where I teach, most kids need to look at every problem from 12 different angles. Although it is challenging, it is also incredibly rewarding.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a very hands on teacher, who teaches through brain based learning strategies. I also use arts based learning strategies and SIOP (Sheltered Instruction - for ESOL learners) daily in my classroom.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I presented at the ECIS Technology Conference in London and the Everything's Intermediate Webinar on English Language Learners. I am the author of the blog Raki's Rad Resources. Throughout my various schools, I have been involved with Math Curriculum Selection Committees, Quarterly Trainers Meetings, Standards Based Report Card Design Committee, and PYP Training. I have trained teachers and parents on the use of technology for education purposes.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I hold a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from Kennesaw University, and a master's degree in Instruction and Curriculum Design focused in Technology from Grand Canyon University. Through inservices provided by my county, I am also SIOP (Sheltered Instructional Observation Protocol) trained, and have recieved my certification in ESOL.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

In addition to being a teacher, I am also a wife, and a mother of three boys - born in 2004, 2007 and 2011.

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
