I firmly believe that all children can learn and at their own pace. If students are giving the proper strategies and tools, they can retain all pertinent skills taught to them. When students’ learning interests and styles are used in instruction, then they are more prone to meeting their own learning goals, standards and academic progress. When students are placed first and given ownership of their learning, the outcomes are highly effective. I am a certified Pre-K to grade 6 educator through the Department of Education (DOE) City of New York. I am a tenured state certified educator and lead mentor for new teachers. I have been a DOE employee for the 27 years. I have taught all grades and am presently out of the classroom teaching Reader’s Theater and Academic Intervention services in reading, writing and math to at risk students. I am also a teacher-Librarian.
