ED.S degreed certified K-8 Arizona Teacher using innovative teaching strategies to ensure academic seccess

About the lesson

I am a certified and highly qualified elementary school K-8 grade teacher in Arizona. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State University in 2001. I began substitute teaching and tutoring privately after college, which exposed me to a lot of different teaching and learning techniques. I have experience tutoring math, reading, and writing. I also have experience tutoring students with a variety of special needs including ADHD and other learning disabilities. It was this, which pushed me to receive my Master’s degree in Educational Intervention from Ottawa University. This program taught me how to adapt my teaching to the unique needs of students. I also have an Education Specialist degree for Walden University focusing on Teacher Leadership. I am a certified reading specialist and ESL teacher. I use manipulatives physical activities, and student interests and abilities to help students grasp difficult subject matter. I modify my teaching methods to make students become successful learners.

About Mandy

During this time, I had begun teaching at an urban charter school in Phoenix as a Saturday School instructor in the areas of reading and writing for seventh and eighth graders. The following year I began teaching fourth grade for the same school. This continued for two years. In my final year there, I taught in the Elementary Special Education Department. While in this situation, I excelled at making adaptions and modifications to make sure that all of my students were successful. After this, I worked as a fourth grade teacher for another school where I used my skills to ensure success again.

I have a disabling condition myself, which helps me be a better teacher and tutor. I understand many of the frustrations that parents and students may feel when dealing with social and academic struggles that may be unique to some families. My own experiences help parents and students understand how to advocate and work with the school systems to ensure success for the student, which is why I became an educator ten years ago. I am proud to be a role model for students and teach them that everyone can be whatever they wish, as long as you want it bad enough! My teaching style can best be described as adaptable. Not every student learns the same way, so before I begin tutoring someone, I want to know as much as possible about the student so that I can use what he or she are great at to help them overcome weaknesses. I will use hands on, visual and auditory input to stimulate the learning process in a student. I will always put a student's unique needs above everything else. I believe that this formula ensures success for all involved!
