I have been substitute teaching at the elementary school level since 2007. In that time, I have taught math, reading, writing, and language arts to thousands of students from grades K-8, at all levels of ability, including in the smaller, more individualized Special Education and Resource settings.
Teaching such a wide range of students has taught me that no two children learn exactly the same way. Indeed, learning styles vary so greatly that one must be something of a detective to tap into each child's unique strengths and challenges in order to maximize the former while overcoming the latter. Children have an innate love of learning that sometimes becomes lost in the school setting; my goal is to restore that natural curiosity by engaging the child's unique strengths to make the learning experience rewarding and fun.
