Worked full time in first and second grades for 12 years. Post retirement I am teaching reading to students who are below reading level - K, 1st, 2nd and third grades.
I like to have fun with the students. Use a lot of games. Gentle approach. Help to build student self-esteem.
Teacher of the Year twice. When I worked for The Hartford Insurance Group, I received The Chairman's Award which partially was for volunteering in education.
Received Masters in Education (Teaching of Reading) from Walden University.
