Joseph Iorio's Teaching Portfolio


I am currently teaching 10th grade ICS History & Spanish at the Jackson Memorial High School, (Contracted Jan 31st - June 30th 2022). Prior, I taught Basic Skills Grades 1-4 at the Forked River Elementary School, Lacey Twp., NJ. (Contracted September 1st - November 30th 2021).

As a permanent substitute teacher in 2020-2021, at the Forked River NJ Elementary School, I have successfully taught classes in-person, as well as remote, in all grade levels. I have also had the pleasure of teaching two weeks in BD, two weeks in LLD, six weeks in 3rd & 4th grade, and three months of ICS/Resource in 2nd and 3rd grade.

Over the previous years, by earning my degree online, I was able to gain four years of classroom experience as a substitute teacher, all while completing my dual degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. I taught through the
Covid-19 pandemic gaining valuable experience with Google Classroom for
in-person and remote education as well as held daily Google Meets for social
and emotional learning.

About Myself...
Welcome to my site! My name is Joseph Iorio and I'm so excited about starting my career in Elementary and Special Education. I graduated from Grand Canyon University in the spring of 2020 with a degree in Elementary Education and Special Education.

I was born in Toms River, NJ and lived my entire life in this wonderful town. Throughout my life I have always felt the calling to help people and this led me down the path towards achieving my goal of being an Elementary School teacher.

My objective is to make a difference in the lives of children. I know from my own experience how important a good teacher can be for a student. Caring about their needs and dedication to helping them every step of the way is critical to providing a learning environment they can flourish in.

My experience with Grand Canyon University has been inspiring. The education and training I received has prepared me well and given me the confidence to begin my career as an Educator. I look forward with anticipation to the challenges ahead.
