Teaching effectively requires students to be engaged in lessons that are student centered, grasps and holds the students interest, and pushes students to their maximum potential. Students will learn new concepts when they know the teacher believes in them and will help them learn from the mistakes they make on the way.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Mississippi in Elementary Education with an emphasis in math and social students. I also received my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Delta State University. I am a licensed teacher in the state of Mississippi.
I have taught English to elementary students for seven years thus far. Each year I have seen my students grow not only in the classroom but on academic state tests. Teaching students in the classroom as well as tutoring after school has enhanced my teaching abilities to a variety of students.
Throughout my teaching, I have tutoring students after school as well as helped with the newspaper staff and cheerleading team. I tutored individual students when I saw there was a need for additional instruction as well as groups of students thru different grades. Also, helping students with the newspaper staff helped my ability as a writing teacher to be enhanced.
