Learning should be fun, not a hassle! I am an experienced teacher, specializing in the primary grades, although I have taught at the college and adult levels as well. A graduate of the National College of Education (now called National Louis University), in Evanston IL, teaching is my passion. I spent the past year living in Belize teaching ESL to adults and children from around the world.
In addition to a BA in Applied Behavioral Sciences, I have met all of the requirements for a B.S. in Elementary Education with the exception of Practice Teaching. I was too busy teaching to take four months off to practice teach. Additionally I have more than 120 Hours at the Mayerson Academy in Cincinnati where I focused on reading, phonics,and the others primary grade subjects and many of the current techniques for teaching them.
Teaching the fundamentals of reading , writing, and arithmetic (and, yes, even penmanship) should not be done to the tune of the hickory stick, but with love, patience, and understanding. I can offer your child an emotionally safe environment in which to learn and grow.
