Retired teacher looking for Elementary students in need!

Retired teacher of 33 years at the elementary level. I have worked with students who are ADHD, Learning Disabled, Autistic, Emotionally Disturbed, and Dyslexic in a small group or one-on-one setting. I use the multi-sensory approach to reach all student's needs. I like to use manipulatives, games, and educational computer games to make learning fun! I love to teach and to see my students be successful.... [more]


Vocabulary

I have taught vocabulary at all elementary levels. Comprehension is very difficult if the student does not know the meaning of the words.


Grammar


Reading

I have taught reading to all levels for over 30 years. I love to read and try to instill that love in my students. I give a pre-test to determine strengths and weaknesses and then teach from there. No two plans are the same! I love working with children and helping them feel successful and improving their self esteem!


ESL/ESOL

I have an ESL certificate from Texas.


Spelling


Elementary Math

Math should be a fun learning experience. I use different manipulatives, interesting worksheets, and iPad apps to help the child understand the different math concepts. Each child needs to have a different method because no two children are alike in their learning style.

I have worked with students in k-5 for over 30 years. I was a Resource teacher with a small group or one-on-one setting who needed extra help.

I have taught phonics for over 30 years in a small group or one-on-one setting for students k-5. This is important to becoming a proficient reader.

Special Needs

I have worked with students with special needs for over 30 years in a Resource/Special Education setting of small groups or one-on-one in k-5.

Students with this disorder need structure, consistency, and a variety of activities to keep them focused on their learning. I have worked with these students for over 30 years in grades k-5.

Students with this disorder need structure, consistency and a multi-sensory approach to learning. I have worked with these students for over 30 years in k-5 small group or one-on-one setting.
