With over 3 years of classroom experience and the desire to provide all students with an excellent education, I am confident in my abilities will be an asset to your student.
My teaching career has been geared toward empowering my students. I have a strong passion to educate young minds and help them blossom into well-rounded, responsible, and successful individuals. Throughout my career I have had the wonderful opportunity to teach diverse groups of students, including those with learning disabilities, those who performed at grade level and advanced students. As a result I have become proficient at designing creative and stimulating lesson plans, which accommodate multiple intelligences, bring a hands on approach to learning and keep students interested and focused.
My greatest strengths include inspiring and motivating students. I actively engage their eager minds by incorporating a variety of manipulatives, enjoyable activities, and cooperative learning projects. In addition, I tailor lesson plans to meet their diverse interests, as well as demonstrate direct connections between classroom and every day life. Furthermore I hold parent teacher conferences and communications on a regular basis to promote participation in the educational process, reinforce education in the home, and boost students self confidence and self esteem.
