About Me

Experience Summary

I have 6 years of substitute teaching experience in the Washoe County School District in Nevada, as well as at a charter school. Substitute teaching has allowed me to work with children from preschool to grade 12, in all subjects. I have worked twice as a preschool teacher, once at the E.L. Cord Child Care Center at TMCC in Reno, and again at His Kids Preschool, using A Beka Book curriculum to teach 2-4 year olds. Additionally, through the College of Education in the University of Nevada, Reno, I have completed several practica. These experiences include whole- and small-group lessons, one-on-one tutoring, Science, Math, Language Arts, and Social Studies. Along with these teaching experiences, I have four children, two of whom were schooled online at home for three years and in which I participated as a learning coach. My children are in Honors classes, Gifted and Talented programs, and have no behavior problems in school.

Teaching Style

For Science and Math I employ an inquiry-based method of teaching/exploration. This allows for more meaningful learning and gives the student the opportunity to learn on his or her own before being given instruction by the teacher. This method is aligned with the STEM initiative in the United States. For Language Arts, reading, and Spanish, I teach by individualizing instruction to each child, allowing for meaning-making and communication rather than simply rote learning of facts and vocabulary. I believe in combining a more traditional, rote approach with the more progressive whole-language approach to create a well-rounded literacy curriculum.

My Hobbies

I enjoy dancing, singing, drama, cinema, reading, and cooking.
