Previous to that, I taught fifth grade one year and was an intervention teacher for a year as well. While I was in college, I worked as a pre-k teacher in a daycare. I would love the chance to work with elementary age students to help bridge the gap that summer can bring. I also enjoy working one-on-one with students. In reading, I believe that children need a mix of sight words and phonics skills to build their reading vocabulary. I have also had training in teaching comprehension strategies and increasing fluency. In math, I use the concrete, representative, abstract mind set.
