Experienced teacher for elementary school reading and writing at 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade levels

Methodology

I love teaching reading, writing, and a range other subjects! My curriculum has focused on vocabulary, spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, paragraph organization, and reading comprehension in grade-appropriate books. I use a variety of teaching methods to meet the need of each student. Creating a supportive environment through positive reinforcement and building a student's self-esteem is as important to me as teaching the core subject matter. Keeping a connection between myself and the parent/guardian is also a key component to a child's success. Most of all, I love spending time with my students!

Background

I have been teaching for 25 years in the Catholic school setting, with a brief stint in a public school setting. I am recently retired as of this academic year, and I miss working with students! I taught at the 3rd and 4th grade levels in a self-contained classroom, teaching reading, math and all other core subjects. I have taught in San Francisco, CA and in Raleigh, NC. I hold a current North Carolina Teaching License at the Highly Qualified level.
