I hold a Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education, certified grades 1-6. I taught for nine years. I left my full time job to become a stay at home mom which allowed me to volunteer in the elementary school that my children are/were enrolled in. I taught an after school enrichment 8 week course in a nearby city, in the Fall of 2014, to children in grades 1-5 in a mixed age classroom. Currently I work as a tutor to identified 3rd graders in the area of reading literacy.
I have nine years of experience as a first grade teacher in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. I've volunteered in my three children's elementary school working with their classmates in the subjects of reading and writing. I am most passionate about the primary grades, and having a solid foundation in which to build upon. Great readers have a strong grasp of phonics which gives them a tool to use when attempting to decode an unfamiliar word.
As a primary teacher I taught study skills every day. The importance of children learning how to effectively study shouldn't be downplayed.
