TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching since 1993. I currently teach reading and writing to 4th and 5th grade students. I have taught bilingual, regular monolingual classes, and gifted and talented classes in urban school districts. At this moment we will be following a new model called Project Child. CHILD is a three-dimensional model that differs from the one-dimensional traditional model designed around a single teacher in a single grade. Three teachers form cluster teams -one teacher for reading, one for writing, and one for mathematics. Cluster teams work across three grade levels. Teachers work with the same students for three years. I will be in a cluster working across only two grade levels.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love focusing on the three T's: Thinking, Technology, and Teamwork! "After studying how a host of companies do their hiring, they conclude that memorizing spelling lists and math tables doesn’t make a young person employable. When it comes to succeeding on the job, initiative, flexibility and teamwork belong right up there with reading , writing and math. By pushing the "hard" skills alone, many of today’s schools continue to educate children for an economy that no longer exits." Teaching the New Basic Skills from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education
