I have eight years experience as a pubic school Art teacher for grades K-12. Currently, I am a substitute teacher in the Ayer/Shirley Regional School District for grades K-12 and am substituting in all subject matters. While I have my own special strengths in subject matters; my main strength is the ability to impart a love of learning in whatever subject I am involved with. I am comfortable with students with special needs, as well as with advanced learning students looking to sharpen their skills in reading for comprehension and writing.
I taught a painting class at the Medium Security Prison facility in Shirley for a period of six years. I have worked church youth groups in both Milton and Shirley. I get along well with young people and treat them with respect and consistency. Instilling a sense of possibility and a love for learning itself is the most valuable asset I have to offer; more than the specific skills I have acquired in my years in the workplace.
In addition to Art, English, History, etc., I have been a member of a running club for many years and have extensive experience in competition - which can be an asset for the physically enthusiastic youngster. I believe you will be pleased with the result if you elect to avail yourself of my services.
