Our classes are designed for the learner who thrives in small group environments. We cap all of our classes at 4 learners. This allows for less distractions, more focus, more discussions and an ability to build a long lasting and authentic rapport with the educator. This is an ongoing class and learners can drop in or out as needed. Classes do not build on the others so you will never feel lost. Jump in anytime! We will first discuss the poet on a PowerPoint, then I will give 1-2 examples...
We will dive deeper into a poem’s meaning, annotating the entire poem, and we will see if the meaning relates to anybody, and we will have group discussion.
My name is Kristina and I truly enjoy helping other people in the best way I can. I am currently enrolled at Cortland State University in New York with a major in inclusive childhood education grades 1-6, a minor in English Language and Arts, and an additional certification in grades 7-12 English. I currently work at a preschool and it is a program that supports children with disabilities. I love the kids, and it is amazing to see their growth every single day. I also work as a substitute teacher in the high school and complete observations at elementary and middle schools near my college which is very fun! I am extremely experienced with students, and I feel like I was meant to be an educator. What sparked my interest for teaching one may ask? I worked for the first tee program of western New York which is a life skills program for young golf athlete. Not only did I show young kids how to hit a golf ball correctly and the mechanics of the swing, I also showed them what perseverance, respect, honesty, confidence, etc means, and they really enjoyed this. I raised amazing little athletes and intelligent thinkers as well.
