I have taught at all levels in the Council Bluffs Community School System and also for Iowa Western Community College Adult Learning Center in English as a Second Language as well as Adult Basic Education. I coordinated Chinese Language classes at Roosevelt Elementary, Franklin Elementary, Wilson Junior High and Abraham Lincoln High School. I have developed a Math Program that teaches from number concepts/place value through positive/negative numbers.
I am very technically proficient and have experience with teaching and using all computer platforms (Windows, Mac and Linux Operating Systems). Various computer applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and their equivalents) in the above platforms....I am a Free/Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) advocate. I have experience with HTML, Video Production, Graphics Programs and some experience with computer programming.
I believe that any child/person can learn and that the kind/gentle approach is best. I am good in finding a way to teach anyone wanting to learn.
When in College at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, I assistant taught many of the Television Broadcasting courses, and many current TV professionals are former students.
I am still learning because learning is a never-ending process...there is always something to learn in life....we each bring experiences to life and learning.
