EducationI recently graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder with a Bachelor's degree in English Literature. I hold a cumulative GPA of 3.72, as well as a secondary language arts endorsement and certified teaching license in the state of Colorado.
ExperienceI recently finished student teaching at Boulder High School where my primary focus was literacy and reading instruction within the classroom. I am the fourth of seven children, and my youngest three siblings were all adopted from the Philippines. I've created and implemented instruction for students at Manhattan Middle School, Northglenn Middle School, and Boulder High School. I'm highly qualified to instruct students and children of all ages and have an incredible ability for establishing meaningful relationships. I'm fun, friendly, energetic and totally committed to what I do. I can guarantee your child/student will not only become a better reader and writer, but they'll enjoy themselves as well.
I also have eight published short stories and flash fiction pieces scattered around the internet at various online publications that include, Crack the Spine Magazine, Feathertale (comes out in Fall 2012), The Piker Press, Pig in a Poke Magazine, as well as The Tomfoolery Review.
HobbiesI love to read, write, ski, listen to music and even make music. I'm knowledgeable and a rockstar in the classroom. My primary strategies toward instruction incorporate a heavy emphasis on entertainment. In my mind, education and entertainment are synonymous. If you're not interested in what's being taught, you're probably not going to learn what's being taught. My goal is to establish interest first and work from there. I'm fun, engaging, and always willing to help!
