Teach For America Proven With Eight Years Of Title 1 School Experience
Hello, Pandemic Parents/Teachers/Workers/Do-it-allers!
As a certified elementary level educator (grades Pre-K to sixth) who has earned the title of "Highly Qualified" by every state I've taught in -- education is my passion and it is the core of my being. I'm a Teach for America alumni -- a program with admittance levels that match Harvard. In my time with Teach for America, I was sent to the most challenging schools in the nation to promote positive change in academics and culture.
To provide a snapshot of my classroom:
- nominated as runner up for teacher of the year three years in a row
- data showed 2. 8 years of reading growth among students in 8 months
- highest math scores in 10 years at my middle school placement
- English Language Arts Chair for the school
- Chosen to represent my schools for media exposure on multiple occasions
Above all else, I believe results come from a connection between parent, student, and teacher. We are a team -- let's have fun and grow!
