My goal is to unlock your child's ability to be successful and to have confidence in how to learn and apply those skills. I have 18 years' experience in teaching elementary, middle, and secondary students. My certifications include business, social studies, computer applications, career development, and mild to moderate special education.
During my career, I have coached swimming, tennis, and basketball. I am married and we have one daughter who works at the Child Development Center at Fort Polk. My last eight years of teaching were with Department of Defense Schools at SHAPE, Belgium. Our students were US and international students from 26 nations. As an additional duty, I served as the business sponsor for Future Business Leaders of America. While at SHAPE, I received two Cash Awards for Exceptional Service as an Educator and recommended by the FBLA parents for Teacher of the Year.
I am gifted at assisting elementary students with their basic subjects and most experienced with middle and secondary subjects in my field. Let me help your child become motivated about all aspects of school by improving those shortfalls in Math, English, Social Studies, or Business.
