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 (self-contained and resource) with hearing loss in grades 6-8 for 5 years, tried elementary students teaching a kindergarten through 5th grade Deaf and hard of hearing classroom, the majority of whom were also ELLs, and now I'm living my dream, teaching secondary students again, grades 5-12th grade ELA at a school for the Deaf!. 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 spoken English, 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.
