Hey there, my name is Aaliyah! My passion lies in supporting young learners through holistic approaches as they navigate their developmental journey. Teaching is where my heart is, as I adore making learning a fun and engaging experience for children. I firmly believe that the best way for students to absorb information is through movement, hands-on learning, and real-life connections. My primary goal is to nurture my students' confidence in their ability to grasp new concepts. For me, building a strong connection is key. I love getting to know my students beyond academics, integrating their interests into our lessons to make the learning material relatable. Picture interactive sessions where we dance to unravel math patterns, engage in thrilling games that get us moving, and practice relaxing stretches for better focus. With me, anticipate a mix of laughter, creativity, and virtual high-fives to celebrate every accomplishment. Let's make learning an experience you'll always enjoy!
The last five years I have taught Kindergarten through 2nd grade. I have tutored preschool to 8th grade. I have a Bachelors Degree in Elementary and Special Education and a Masters Degree in Youth Development Leadership. I have been in the education field since I was a little girl teaching Children's Church lessons, but my official journey in the education world started 8 years ago.
