Hello Donor, I have been teaching for 6 years. I taught pre-k, first and second grade. This year I am undertaking a new challenge. I just received my masters in special education and I am pursuing my dream of helping children who are in need for some extra support in order to succeed in our world. I am going to be the resource teacher for grades 1-4. I will be taking about four students at a time to my room where I will be helping them to strengthen their reading and writing skills. I remember my self as a student, having a hard time concentrating and remembering information the teachers taught me. I strongly believe that teaching through games is best. When a child is enjoying himself/herself he/she tends to forget that they are learning new skills at the same time. I will be using the games to strengthen the different skills students need to succeed in reading and writing. The students who attend my school are predominantly minorities who come from homes where English is the second language spoken. The games are very visual and interesting. I do believe they will make a difference with helping my children learn to read and write better. Thanks again for your great generosity.
