TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hello! My name is Alex Roman. I am a teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH). I have taught all ages from 3-21 and all grade levels. I spent two years as an itinerant teacher before becoming a classroom teacher. I taught middle school students with hearing loss in grades 6-8 for 5 years, and I now teach kindergarten through 2nd grade Deaf and hard of hearing students, the majority of whom are also ELLs. I have a self-contained group that stays with me all day, excluding related arts. I teach all core subjects for all the grades, including language arts/writing, reading, math, science, and social studies. I also have a resource/tutorial group from each grade level that rotates in and out throughout the day. I also provide services from mainstreamed DHH students on consultation and being homeschooled. These students receive auditory training and instruction in study skills and self-advocacy as well as support for their academic coursework. In addition to Deaf education, I also provide tutoring to English language learners of all ages and homebound services to students with chronic illness.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We use American Sign Language and Cued Speech in my classroom depending on the communication decisions made by each student's IEP team. My teaching style is heavy on game-based learning and very student led. I also rely on academic conversations to support student language development and content comprehension.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in English language development. I did my BA in elementary education (K-6) and Special Education for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (K-12). I also have TESOL and TEFL certification.
