Dear Parents and Students - I am excited to find this opportunity to reach out to help students as they move through their academic school year. I have a strong background in mentoring and teaching young people from kindergarten through high school. I have recently completed my BS degree in elementary education at Wilmington University. This recent accomplishment has equipped me with all the latest teaching techniques, which can be applied to a whole classroom setting or for individual students with learning disabilities or who have just fallen behind in their studies. I decided to change careers after spending 12+ years as a self-employed business person. I have been self-employed as a medical transcription professional working with general surgical physicians. I would describe myself as a self-starter and I enjoy prioritizing goals to successful completion. I enjoy working with people of all ages and backgrounds - particularly children. I believe my business, education and volunteer background have been the building blocks toward a career in education.

Experience:

-I am a certified elementary education teacher. I have undergone and keep a background check up to date.

-I successfully home-schooled my own two children for a period of 4 years, while they were in 3-7th grades.

While homeschooling, I was hired as a mentor to about 7 home-school families each year. I counseled and collaborated with them to organize their home-school, select curriculum, find multiple resources to enhance the learning day and ensure they were meeting state standards for education.

-I have a long history working and teaching children in my volunteer endeavors.

-I am employed as a substitute-guest teacher in a successful Delaware school district and, as such, was in the classroom most of the 2011-2012 school year.

My Personality:

I am patient and calm. I love to learn new things and share learning with others. I truly enjoy working with children and can make learning fun and rewarding, but I don't shy away from our need to be disciplined people. I encourage perseverance and work hard to find the best resources to suit a student individual learning style. I have an extraordinary way of engaging children in their own learning experiences and am confident that together we can meet the academic goals that you, me and the student, "the team," determine are the skills that need to be improved upon or push the student to the next level of academic excellence.
