For the past 18 years it has been my joy and privilege to be a classroom teacher to students from kindergarten through high school. What a thrill it is to see some of my first students graduating with their MA!
During the summers I have enjoyed the opportunity to teach high school literature and grammar on a one-on-one basis with students that wanted to get ahead or just needed a little extra encouragement. As our high school students prepare to take that next important step into college, having a working knowledge of English grammar and literature will help prepare them to be successful on the university level.
I have also spent countless enjoyable hours helping elementary students to learn to love reading and generally making sure students will be well prepared for the next grade level in the fall. Learning should be fun for our lower elementary students. Sometimes putting the multiplication facts on the concrete in chalk keeps the student going when the repetition of flashcards has made him lose his concentration. As the school librarian, I also have a passion for reading and believe the student must be an excellent reader to succeed in college and his chosen profession. I work on finding creative ways of enhancing reading comprehension and retention.
I am eager to see my students succeed.
