Elementary (K-6th)

I am Certified with an Elementary Certificate. I usually work with special needs students and have been working in the regular education classrooms as a substitute lately.

Elementary Math

I have been tutoring students in math for at least 20 years now. I have also taught special needs students with the Saxon Math program. I have substituted in many math classes K-12 successfully. I enjoy doing math and have had fun teaching it also.

I have been teaching the basics of English/ Language programs for many years. I have taken and taught lessons one-on-one and in groups, i.e. spelling, grammar and writing.

General Music

I have taken many classes that were music related including teaching music to elementary students. I have directed primary and adult groups in choirs and classes. I have taught piano lessons. I have also written and arranged music. I have been subbing in music classes, including general music,choir, band and orchestra.

Phonics

I have a teaching certification in Special Education. I have helped students achieve in reading and writing by using the Sonday System and Language foundations, two great programs that teach with and emphasis on phonics. I have also prepared students for progress monitoring and informal assessing with DIBLES and AIMSweb probes.

Public Speaking

I have taken Public Speaking in school and have had practice teaching adults as an in-service leader. I have also had several opportunities to speak to large and small groups in a church setting and in school and business professional development settings.

Reading

I have been teaching reading individually and with full classes for over 20 years. I have recently discovered the Sonday System that is helping many of my students to learn to read in spite of their disabilities.

Songwriting

I have written music in my college music classes. I have also written two songs on my own and arranged a few with help of some other song writers. I have recently written words to another song and am in the process of composing the music. I have taken theory with my piano lessons and taught music theory along with the piano lessons I taught.

Special Needs

I am certified in special education specific Learning disabilities. I have worked with special needs students in my own classes as a certified teacher for 11 years. I have worked also as a tutor for the same amount of time. Previously I worked with special needs students in the regular classroom as a volunteer for 20 years while I was raising my own children with special needs.

Study Skills

I have taught Study Skills classes to eighth grade resource students. I have also subbed in resource study skills classes and taught the skills needed at that time. I have also taught teacher development classes in my church callings. I have tutored many students in study skills including test taking strategies and setting up homework areas complete with supplies and time management.

Theatre

I have worked in Opera Workshop classes in the community college. I have written my own road show scripts and directed them and received awards in competitions. I have worked as a costume mistress, worked the lights, worked with props and was assistant director for some Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. I often have my students do plays on Fridays or before breaks in school. I find the students read plays better than prose. This has shown them they can read better than thought. It has also got them reading when they previously refused.
