As a language arts and math teacher with 14+ years experience, I have taught elementary, middle, and high school levels. My focus is on ESL students, or English Learners, so my materials tend to work best for kids who need extra scaffolding to learn. In particular, these are made with middle and high school students in mind--those that struggle with reading and are reading below grade level. Teacher Trainer: For over four years I coached new and experienced teachers, and am well versed on how to set up routines and build structures in the classroom. These are key to producing good behavior in the classroom! My experiences co-teaching led me to scaffold and differentiate other's lessons to make them accessible for ESL and Special Education students. I work in a large school district in Virginia, and have written district-level curriculum in Math, English, ESL, and Social Studies/World History.
Building relationships with students and engaging them in learning is the key. I differentiate lessons all day long, every day. My students make connections to their learning, they use technology daily in lessons, and they enjoy coming to my class even though I push them to learn a lot!
