TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Substitute Teacher (K-12), 2008-Present; 2002-2006 -- SOMETOWN SCHOOL DISTRICT (Sometown, TX)
Returned to the classroom in substitute teaching role after taking time off to home-school three children. Fulfill both short- and long-term substitute assignments across all subject areas, effectively teaching students of varied academic/age levels (grades K-12) and diverse cultural backgrounds. Instruct classes of as many as 24 students; communicate with teachers, administrators and parents; and build a positive rapport with students.

Key Contributions & Educational Outcomes:
  • Consistently praised for dedication, reliability, organization and effectiveness as one of school district's most in-demand substitutes. Filled in for permanent teachers at a moment's notice; closely adhered to lesson plans; and kept students motivated, engaged and focused.
  • Repeatedly selected as a long-term substitute for teachers on maternity or extended medical leave.
  • Frequently subbed for absent ESL/ESOL, high school Spanish and special education teachers as one of the few substitute teachers qualified in these areas. Showed resourcefulness and teaching effectiveness in meeting the needs of students with limited English language proficiency as well as learning disabilities.
  • Voluntarily stepped in to run several after-school programs (e.g., girls' volleyball coaching, cheerleading coaching and after-school tutoring) when permanent teachers were unable to fill these roles.
  • Incorporated technology into students' learning activities for varied academic disciplines. Efforts proved so successful in enhancing student understanding of material that they resulted in invitation to lead districtwide teacher in-service on "Technology Integration across the Curriculum."
