10 yrs exp
I am a certified 7-12 English teacher who recently retired from teaching 9th, 11th, and 12th grade classes, including AP Language and Composition. Prior to teaching high school, I taught Freshman Composition I and II, as well as Creative Writing at the U. of Hartford. I have even had some of my work published in literary magazines.. Before I became certified to teach English, I worked as an assistant teacher in a Montessori school with pre-K and 4th grade students. Presently, I am a paraprofessional working with Special Ed. students. I love helping students build their skills in reading and writing, improve their organization and study skills, practice their algebra, research history topics, etc. My years of experience in Education have taught me many strategies to help students find more meaning in fiction and non-fiction; to scaffold lessons, so students can understand a step at a time; and to make learning enjoyable. I look forward to working with you!
