I am certified in elementary education and have had experience teaching both special and regular education at this level. I have worked as a teaching assistant at the elementary level working one on one with students in math, social studies, reading, and science.
I have helped students find ways to organize their materials and prioritize their time so they can be successful in school. My experience in special education has helped me to recognize students strengths and build on them. I have worked in a resource room where we focused on helping students with their study skills and organization When I work on improving study skills, I will work on reading skills, writing skills, note taking, and test taking strategies.
