𝐀𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐁𝐞𝐜𝐤𝐲 𝐙𝐞𝐫𝐫 Teaching--especially in English, writing, and language arts--is a true passion of mine. I graduated Cum Laude from Kansas State University in 2010 with a Secondary Education degree in English and Journalism, and then went on to teach in the public schools before setting off on my own as an online teacher and tutor. My philosophy of education is to make it as fun, personalized, and as interactive as possible for the kids. I always try to even out my direct instruction/lecture time with plenty of opportunities for students to practice these new skills, take polls, play review games, and collaborate with peers. I am happily married to my husband Brad, and we have two beautiful daughters, Sophia and Elise. We currently reside in Kansas in a small town, and we love the small town life. Oh, and Zerr is pronounced "Zarr," so it rhymes with "car." 😉 𝐀𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐌𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐚 𝐖𝐢𝐧𝐤𝐥𝐞𝐫 Hi there! I'm Monica and I teach reading, vocabulary, and writing classes. I recently finished graduate school in linguistics. I grew up speaking English, Spanish, and Swiss German at home, so I've been surrounded by several languages from a young age. Whether I am studying the history of a word, or what language can tell us about its speakers, I am endlessly curious about language. I have experience teaching linguistics courses at the university level, as well as teaching writing, reading, and English as a second language online. I'm so excited to share my passion for language and to learn with and from my students! My teaching philosophy is that every student comes into the classroom with knowledge. It's my job, as a teacher, to leverage what they already know to help them achieve their goals. Outside of the classroom, you can find me at the beach, or out in nature. I love to spend my free time reading, writing, and with my friends and family. Oh, and playing with my cat, Biscuit! I'm looking forward to seeing you in class! 😊 𝐀𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐃𝐨𝐧𝐧𝐚 𝐌𝐜𝐄𝐥𝐡𝐞𝐧𝐲 Hello! My name is Donna (students often call me Teacher Donna) and I am so excited to meet you! I have a Bachelor's Degree in Education with a concentration in English, an active teaching certificate, and am currently in the process of working on my Master's Degree as a Reading Specialist. I teach English Language Arts with New Horizons Academy and stay home with my own four young kiddos. My kids (ages 10, 8, 6, and 3) keep me on my toes and help me to come up with new and fun lessons to bring into the classroom for your own little learners. I love teaching children of all ages and am looking forward to becoming your child's teacher. My personal teaching philosophy is "We are Lifelong Learners!" I want to foster a love of learning in my classroom through engaging, fun, and creative lessons. I hope to see you in my classroom very soon! ✨ 𝐀𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐁𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐭𝐧𝐞𝐲 𝐒𝐡𝐚𝐰 Hi! My name is Brittney. I received my Associates Degree in Elementary Education and my Bachelors Degree in English. I love working with kids and have experience with all ages. I am a wife and mother of four, ages 9, 6, 4, and 1, and the oldest of eight. I have been both a nanny and babysitter as well. Through my past employment and own kids, have gained experience with children with speech delays, autism, and ADHD. I have also worked as a classroom volunteer and ESL instructor. I love reading and writing and am a total bookworm. I also love dogs and cooking. My kitchen and my reading chair are my happy places! My teaching philosophy is that every child is different and my job is to make sure to embrace those differences to make the education experience the best for all the children. I also want to make sure I do my best to foster a love of reading in my students because, "if you can read, you can do anything!" Qualifications: -Associates in Elementary Education -Bachelors in English -Former ESL instructor -Experience with all ages 𝐀𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐑𝐞𝐛𝐞𝐜𝐜𝐚 𝐖𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐧 Hi! My name is Rebecca and I'm from South Carolina in the USA. I've been teaching for over 9 years, both in the classroom and online. I graduated from the College of Charleston with a Bachelor's degree in Sociology and a minor in Psychology. This background helps me to relate to students from all walks of life. I earned my ESL teaching certification from Oxford Seminars in 2013. I have taught English in New York City, Nicaragua, and Thailand as a US Peace Corps teacher. I've also taught students online from countries like China, Japan, and all over Central and South America. I speak conversational Thai and Spanish. In addition to teaching English, I also teach dance! I enjoy cooking, being active outdoors, and making crafts. I look forward to meeting you soon! Qualifications: - BS College of Charleston - 100 Hour TEFL/ TESL/ TESOL Certification - Oxford Seminars - 9 years of experience
Between meetings, students will work on memorizing their chosen poems, practicing their recitation techniques, and watching past performances for inspiration.
Any needed materials will be provided by links in the Outschool Classroom.
There will be a competition at the end of this course; however, that is not the true measure of growth and learning. Upon parent request, a written report of the learner's growth and learning will be provided.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Some of the poems included in the Poetry Out Loud anthology may include sensitive topics. Please review the poems your student has selected. The anthology can be accessed at https://www.poetryoutloud.org/search/?type=poem. At New Horizons Academy, we understand how difficult setting your family's schedule can be, juggling everyone's activities and classes. To honor that time commitment, we are proud to be able to offer another of our organization's Outschool-approved and trained teachers (Mrs. Becky, Teacher Sara, Ms. Monica, or Teacher Donna) in the rare occurrence of teacher illnesses or urgent personal events. This will allow you to keep your schedule in-tact as much as possible and keep the learning going!
