TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have experience working with all grade levels and am familiar with a variety of curriculum. I have a Masters in Reading Education, reading specialist credential, and a reading certificate. The education I received in my Master's program focused heavily on the changes in literacy due to the Common Core Standards which is reflected in the curriculum I have created. I also have experience training teachers in common core approaches such as close reading. Additionally, I worked with a writing curriculum company to aide in their transition from the previous CA State Standards to the Common Core Standards. I currently am teaching reading at the community college level to remedial readers as well working for San Diego State University in a reading clinic with elementary students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I take a holistic approach to teaching with an emphasis in project based learning.
