I was a public school teacher for over thirty years. I taught English, History, Music and Theater. I retired in 2010 and was bored to tears. I have been a substitute teacher in all grades since my retirement. I love working with young people and have had great success as both a mentor and motivator for students of all ages. There are many different kinds of intelligence of which "book learning" is only one. Every student needs to learn where their talents lie and capitalize on those skills. My job as a teacher is to help students discover those skills which come naturally to them and to develop techniques to improve those skills which they find more difficult. Above all, learning must be a pleasant activity. My style makes it fun to learn, and once a student experiences success and starts to know the joy of accomplishment, amazing things start to happen.
