"I worked within a charter school network in Phoenix from 2014-2019. I taught Latin I, Latin II, and Intro Literature and Composition in the classroom setting. During my final year, I remediated three Latin classes by teaching them a year's worth of content in the last quarter of school. I condensed the content into interactive packets, making sure the content was both easily accessible and enjoyable. Despite the class being turned into a pass/fail, each class's average was a B or higher because I facilitated an environment in which the students wanted to learn. I greatly enjoy getting to know my students as I believe it is key to building trust and, ultimately, their success within the course.

Additionally, I worked as a Special Education Assistant for three years. I provided one-on-one and small group instruction to narrow the performance gap between special education students and their general education peers. I mainly worked with middle school students and gained knowledge of all of their subject areas. I also addressed issues of executive functioning through honing skills of organization, planning, and accountability.

My main passion in education is helping students learn how THEY best learn. No two students are the same and yet classes are often taught in such a way that appeal to only one manner of learning. It makes me sad when students do not feel smart simply because they are being taught in the way that does not work for them. I like to try different study skills during my sessions to see which works best for each student.

I graduated from ASU's post-baccalaureate Speech-Language Pathology Assistant program in December 2020.

I am excited to get to know you and help you learn the skills to succeed!" less...
