My name is Jessica Alicea. I am 39 years old and I reside in New York. I graduated from Hofstra University in 1999 with a BA in Education and I earned my Masters Degree from Stony Brook University in 2001. I started teaching sixth grade at a local middle school in September of 2000. I taught 6th grade for 10 years. I am currently teaching second grade at one of the elementary schools in the same school district.
I think this sums up my teaching style: Demonstrator or Personal Model Teachers who have a demonstrator or personal model teaching style tend to run teacher-centered classes with an emphasis on demonstration and modeling. This type of teacher acts as a role model by demonstrating skills and processes and then as a coach/guide in helping students develop and apply these skills and knowledge. A teacher with this type of teaching style might comment: "I show my students how to properly do a task or work through a problem and then I'll help them master the task or problem solution. It's important that my students can independently solve similar problems by using and adapting demonstrated methods." Instructors with this teaching style are interested in encouraging student participation and adapting their presentation to include various learning styles. Students are expected to take some responsibility for learning what they need to know and for asking for help when they don't understand something.
