I am originally from Phoenix, Arizona, but recently endured an Army relocation to a SW Atlanta suburb, as my husband is in the Army. I attended Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ, and graduated with a B.A. in Sociology (Family emphasis) and a B.S. in Justice Studies (Criminal and Forensic emphases). After college, I had knee surgery and could not join the military as planned, so I began substitute teaching and discovered that I loved it! At the high school level, I taught Special Ed for one year and Physical Science for three years. Due to lack of opportunities in our prior location and the urge to become a student again, I completed my M.S. in Criminal Justice from the University of Cincinnati in December of 2010. I am currently employed as a Parole Officer in the Fort Benning area, so most of my availability is on the weekends, but exceptions can be made with planning. I am also seeking part time employment as an adjunct professor in the near future.
As a former high school teacher of four years, I have dealt with various types of learning. My door was always open before and after school as well as during lunch. If needed, my students could also reach me via email. I firmly believe that people learn in different ways. For those of you wondering, I will adjust my teaching style to fit your needs to the best of my ability. I am more of a visual learner, so when teaching, I incorporated that style into my lessons. My students tended to respond well and got more out of each lesson, but this didn't always work. There are times when you have to adjust, so if something isn't working, just let me know, as I will not be offended. I am here to help you succeed and make you a successful student!
I am an outgoing person who loves to help people and make them as successful as possible. Some of my interests are animals, sports, playing the clarinet, and running. In my spare time, I enjoy watching sports, exercising, and spending time with my family and friends. Good luck to you all and if needed, I hope that I can assist you!
