I'm currently teaching English in Shenzhen, China for Seadragon Education Service Co.,Ltd. I'm located at Kengzi Primary School grade 1-4. From 2014 to 2016 I taught at Fred McWhorter Elementary in mesquite, Texas as a Physical Education teacher. My job duties involved developing motor skills, organizing games, and challenges that promote physical activity among children from kindergarten to Grade 6. From 2013 to 2014 I taught at Edward Titche Elementary in Dallas, Texas as a teacher assistant. I performed duties that are instructional in nature or deliver direct services to students and parents. From 2010 to 2013 I taught as a Substitute teacher in Dallas, Texas. I was Responsible for providing instruction, managing the classroom environment and promoting student learning in the absence of the regular classroom teacher.
For 6 years I was a teacher in the Texas school system teaching a variety of students from different backgrounds. I am currently living and teaching in Shenzhen, China. My experience teaching in china this year has allowed me to work with children from different age groups. Through these experiences, I have strengthened my ability to communicate effectively with students, acknowledged that students have different learning disabilities and improved my classroom management techniques. I believe that it is important to understand the weaknesses and strengths that students bring into the classroom. I have gained a clear understanding of how to adjust my teaching techniques toward different students, whether it’s verbally or through the latest technology.
