Educator and Counselor

 

I am a committed, enthusiastic, effective, and passionate elementary school teacher with a proven record of helping children progress, providing positive learning experiences as well as building and maintaining classroom management through the use of positive reinforcement. For over ten years I enjoyed sharing knowledge, and inspiring children to learn new skills. One of my passions is poetry so I have been able to use my skill in the classroom to promote reading and writing literacy. Teaching in the United States and in the UAE has given me a diverse perspective about student needs and allowed me to become more flexible, culturally sensitive, creative in my teaching methods for ESL students and build tenacity in the ever changing classroom.
