Summary

I am interested in applying for an instructional position. During the 2010-2011 school year, I was employed at Nova Eisenhower Elementary in Davie, Fl. My position at Eisenhower was as a math and social studies instructor for fifth grade as well as third grade math and reading intervention support.  I also tutored math ranging from Kindergarten to Algebra 1 Honors for several years. I currently hold a five year Florida Certificate in Elementary K-6, Middle Grades Mathematics, ESOL Endorsement and am currently working on obtaining certification in Upper-grades Mathematics.This school year I had the chance to work with struggling readers using the Basal and Core curriculum and implemented Go Math interventions in my lessons. I used keynote presentations to enhance the curriculum as well as FCAT explorer and First In Math on a daily basis. I participated in the response to intervention process and monitored the progress of my students. The data collected showed that the students made tremendous gains not only in reading but mathematics as well.  I also worked cooperatively with the CPST team and other teachers throughout the year.I am motivated, loving and demanding. My number one priority is to ensure students succeed regardless of their circumstances or instructional level. I hold myself to higher standards expanding my knowledge through professional development, educational workshops and college courses. I am confident that I can continue to foster the educational growth of students. I would be an excellent addition to your school. I welcome an interview and look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.
