I did my student teaching, and long-term substituted, for 5th grade in a Title I school. I am currently working as a Teacher's Assistant in a private Christian school in Pasadena, California. I assist in building lesson planning and curriculum, as well as provide independent instruction for grades pre-k-4th.
During my student teaching I was trained with the Whole Brain Teaching method. My goal is that my materials and lessons will appeal to a diverse set of learners and giftings, and therefore, help students to learn to the best of their ability in a supportive environment. I believe in an interactive classroom tailored to students' interests.I also believe in involving students in the teaching process, and encouraging them to take authority of their learning!
Yet to be added
I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Counseling and a Master of Art in Teaching degree in Elementary Education. I am currently licensed for grades pre-k-6th.
Just for fun: I enjoy traveling, hiking, and adventuring in my free time! I love reading and classic literature, as well as good movies and music. I also enjoy making materials to be used in classrooms all over the country! I dream of teaching overseas in third world countries and in the inner cities after I return. So glad I can help you! If you have any suggestions for new materials or requests please leave me a comment! :)
