I have been teaching for 18 years. For the first 17 years of my career, I taught various grade levels in elementary. I spent the last 10 of those years teaching 3rd grade and preparing those students for the FCAT/ FSA test. This school year, I began teaching high school intensive reading. I enjoy teaching all grade levels. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Barry University with an endorsement in ESL. I also have a master's degree in Reading Education (K-12) from Florida International University. I am an avid reader and enjoy helping others become better readers and have a love for reading.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe in finding out what a student enjoys and their strengths, and using that to help them with the subjects that they struggle with.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Find out how the student learns best and what they would like to accomplish. Also find out their current level to see how far they are from where they need to be.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I would show them skills and strategies and encourage them with positive reinforcement.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I use positive reinforcement to help them realize that they can do it and not overwhelm them.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I would try different ways and continue to practice that concept until they are able to understand.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

Find out what level they can read at and start from the beginning. Reading comprehension requires a lot of practice and vocabulary.
