I believe that all students can learn and succeed, with the correct scaffolding, and instructional support. A teacher can provide the assistance that makes all the difference in a learner's academic career.
Having attained a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education, and a Bachelors in Special Education, I am able to assess a wide range of learners. My Masters degree in Communication Education helps me to reveal those learned concepts to my students in ways they understand. I personally can set in place supports, whether by academic resources, study sheets, or assisted technology, that will aid learners. Once I conduct a minor learning style assessment, I am able to render appropriate instruction to students. Some student learn best by having instructors model a lesson, and some by reading out instructions, and others can grasp details when they are read to. No matter the style of learning, repetition and patience are applied in the method used to reach my students.
It is not all hard work with me, I do enjoy learning games, and competitions and engage these with learners. I believe in age appropriate and vigorous instruction. The vigorous part will be supports (and is vital to develop academic confidence) and student will be able to maintain grade-level or above grade-level status with the right support. The student-centered approach I use ensures that learners are able to rate their understanding every 30 minutes. This tells me if I am moving at a steady rate or I need to re-teach a concept. The self assessments I use are enjoyed by my students because they are able to monitor their progress and see exactly where their strengths are.
