My professional teaching experience includes pre-K, elementary grades first through fourth, and ESL. I've also instructed tutoring sessions, test prep, summer reading groups, piano lessons, and community service learning opportunities. Really, every day is a new lesson learned and amazing hands-on learning experience.
My teaching style is mostly structured with scaffolding and lots of review. I like to teach the individual student and differentiate my lessons based on students' interests and needs. Adding some fun or fresh projects is exciting for students and teachers! In addition, optimizing activities with digital components is an extra plus.
My honorable teacher shining moment was when my school teaching team was picked as the top producing, best teaching team of the year. Another was being selected as the best teacher in the history of our church school.
Master's degree in education from University of Central Florida, specializing in language arts with the ESOL endorsement. Bachelor's degree in elementary education from University of Central Florida.
I teach English while also creating my own lessons and curriculum, exercising, traveling, volunteering in the community, and caring for our pet poodle, Alvin. My hope is that many students and teachers will learn and grow as a result of these products. Find us on IG @Smilingstudentslessonplans
