When I left teaching I found that I missed working with students. I have always loved teaching math, and particularly missed helping students discover their math abilities.
My teaching experiences include many grade levels, from elementary to college, and I have taught many subjects. It is a joy to help students learn to love math, discover that they can read and write, and find learning to be the same life-long wonder it has always been for me.
As a high school student I starting teaching children by giving piano lessons long before receiving my Ph.D in music education and music theory from Michigan State University. After teaching music for several years I started a family and consulted with the Nevada Department of Education while raising my two girls. I am also certified and have taught in special education, elementary education, middle and high school. In 2001, I was awarded National Certification, a distinction that required an examination process as well as detailed scrutiny of my teaching methods by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. I have done additional graduate study in literacy and have taught in special programs for reading, writing, and spelling instruction. I look forward to working with students in elementary and middle school grades.
