All Elementary School and Middle School subjects

I enjoy learning new words and look at the web site dictionary.com since they give a new word every day to learn and to use. It is important to use different words and not always say big or good and try some other different, better or not often used words. I currently am a certified teacher from K-9th grade and teach all elementary grade classes along with Middle school and some high school Math classes. I also have an undergraduate degree from DePaul University in Chicago in Accounting and I also took a number of extra math classes. I have also been a substitute school teacher in the Valle [more]

Language Arts, English, Reading, Social Sciences, Special Needs

As a pilot teacher for the common core curriculum, I had the first-hand opportunity to learn about the best ways to teach students vocabulary. Using many sources, I helped to create and implement the use of Tier 2 Words in the classroom. By explicitly teaching vocabulary within the context, students will be able to retain the words for life, rather than just for the test. My love of teaching stems from a lifetime of learning. As a veteran educator, I know individual attention can significantly impact student achievement. Throughout my ten years of teaching, I have had the privilege of givi [more]
