Teacher (Pre-K), 7/03 to 8/09

Hired as a floater to help in classrooms where needed. After one month of employment I became the co-teacher in the toddler room.  Two months later a position was offered in the pre-k classroom and I eagerly volunteered to move to the classroom. I was the primary teacher in the classroom for six years and loved it.

Key Contributions:

  •  Earned high marks for the quality of classroom teaching, lesson plans and instructional materials used in teaching pre-kindergarten skills.
  •  In six years of employment I never had a licensing violation in my classroom.
  • Worked with a diverse mix of children including foster children, children with ADHD, Asperger’s  Syndrome, and children with health issues such as diabetics and  severe allergies. 
  •  Consistently commended for ability to redirect students exhibiting behavior problems by replacing disruptive, unproductive patterns with positive behaviors.
  • Quickly became a SMIC (staff member in charge) when supervisors were away from the center.
  • Nursery Attendant 2/02-11/03

    Worked as the attendant in a local church nursery on Sundays and during bible study nights.

    • Provided fun and safe activities to provide an engaging atmosphere for toddlers
    • Implemented a signin/out procedure to obtain a safe environment for children
