I have been teaching middle school for 12 years where I have taught 6 years in math and 6 years in reading/language arts. My certifications include: 4th-8th grade Reading, Language Arts, Math, and Gifted education. While I am not certified Special Education, I have taught Special Education students within my classroom almost every year. I also have experience working with ESL students. I love teaching and enjoy interacting daily with my kids. Math is probably my favorite subject to teach, but I also love teaching Language arts. They are so different!
Helping students better understand a concept or subject is a vital part of my job. I try to use simple terms and explanations when working with my students. I like to identify what the student already knows about the concept, find out where they are stuck, and then proceed to move them to a point where they are able to understand the concept.
