         As a veteran teacher of more than 23 years, I have found that my bachelor’s degree in Exceptional Student Education has helped me know HOW to teach and my master’s degree in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment has allowed me to design specific curriculum to fit the needs of various learners. All students LEARN DIFFERENTLY based on their strengths and weaknesses.
         I also have the following degrees & certifications: Elementary Education K-6, Middle School English 7-9, English 9-12, and Exceptional Student Education K-12. I also have the following endorsements: Reading and ELL (ESOL).
        I have learned that the most productive method of teaching is the application or transfer step. Students LEARN by DOING and they enjoy doing if they are engaged in their learning. Once they understand the concept and why it is important to know and how it would benefit them, they should begin applying the skill in an authentic or real-world setting.
REMINDER: This is a flex class.  Flex classes DO NOT meet live. Learners work at their own pace but should be aware of the due dates for their weekly assignments.

IMPORTANT NOTE: grades are not issued for this course. Keep in mind that the end-of-the-week test is self-grading. Use the data as feedback on specific reading comprehension skills that need to be addressed. If there are additional questions a student has about a skill, please contact me in the classroom messaging portal.

Formative feedback is given for any assignments that has a due date. Keep in mind that the end-of-the-week test is self-grading through Google Forms and the project is assessed based on weekly completion.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
