When I was very young, I knew that I wanted to be a teacher, and I expressed this desire to my loved ones often. I would take my little chalkboard and books out and "play" school with kids in my neighborhood. In 6th Grade, I was chosen to help tutor First Grade students in Reading - I had a student who would come to our classroom where I would read with her to help improve her reading skills. This experience gave me confidence and taught me the true enjoyment of helping someone learn something new.
My Teaching Experience
I have been a classroom teacher for over 25 years, and during that time I have taught students ranging from Kindergarten age through 8th Grade. I also have over 15 years experience as a professional tutor, plus many years of tutoring just to help friends and fellow classmates. I have taught all subjects, but I am exceptional at teaching and assessing Reading and Writing.
My Philosophy of Education
As an educator I have a responsibility to honor and educate the whole person. I believe in the full mastery of the subject matter. I also know how important it is to help develop a child’s character and motivation to succeed as well as develop their unique gifts and talents.
My Goal As An Educator
To foster a love of learning and to provide genuine opportunities for students to explore individual interests and pursuits.
I want to provide a service and create a community that will help kids enjoy the process of learning about the world around them!!!
