*Please note that the following work experience was an internship to complete my Single Subject Teaching Credential. The duration of which required me to take on the responsibilities of a teacher from September 2010 to December 2010 only.
Collaborating daily with other Algebra teachers, we implemented proven strategies, techniques, and activities that promoted student engagement in the subject matter as well as accommodated for all various learning styles (visual, auditory, kinesthetic, etc.) and special needs (English language learners, mental/physical disabilities, etc.).
- Experience in teaching middle school Algebra using various innovative techniques incorporating realia and manipulatives in order for students to acquire a visual understanding of math through a conceptual lens.
- Experience in creating fun and engaging academic activities that exercise different learning styles (i.e. visual, auditory, kinesthetic). These innovative activities emphasize the importance of team building skills and competition as factors that contribute to student engagement (i.e. team races, scavenger hunt, murder mystery games, etc).
- Professionally certified in working with English language learners and students with special needs.
