Experienced Teacher ready to work with children and create confidence in all subject areas!

Methodology

I have taught students entering Kindergarten how to read all the way to high school students who need help editing and revising to create an effective essay. I also work with students for who reading is hard and students for who reading is easy. My lessons start off with a review of the previous lesson and are always fun and engaging. We always play some sort of game!

Background

I have taught in Kindergarten and Third Grade, each for one year. I also am pursuing my masters in Secondary Education- English and Special Education. My students are confident in themselves and learn to love reading, the process of reading, and become lifelong learners.
