As an accomplished educator, I believe that all students can and want to learn. Students will perform when they know that their individual learning needs are met. Students learn best through engagement and discussion.
I have a successful background, as an ELA teacher, instructional coach, implementation specialist and adjunct college instructor for adults who seeking certification in becoming a teacher.
Additionally, I hold an M.A. Ed in Curriculum Instruction and Administrative credentials.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
When a student has difficulty learning a new skill or concept, this can denote that there is a lack of prerequisite knowledge or that the concept was not modeled effectively enough for the student to understand. In either case, as the teacher, I would provide the prerequisite knowledge, model the expected outcomes and guide the student through practice until mastery is ascertained.
