I love helping people to be successful. I am currently a teacher in Fairfax County and I love working with children, young adults and adults. I am an experienced writer and have been trained with The Northern Virginia Writing Project. I've written a novel and I am working on finding an agent for it.
I have been cooking personally for 25 years. I have worked as a line cook for a year, I worked for Williams Sonoma for a year and a half, and I have served in restaurants for more than 8 years. Serving in these restaurants has involved an extensive knowledge of ingredients, preparation methods and presentation of food.
I have an undergraduate degree and a Master's degree in elementary education. I have been teaching for 9 years in a variety of grade levels. I have tutored in a title one school as well as privately for a student in a prep school.
I have seven years of working with students in elementary mathematics. I love to use real-life examples to make math relevant and interesting to learn. Hands-on activities and manipulatives are an important part of my instructional approach.
I have seven years of teaching elementary science. I love to work with the content and explore hands-on activities to make the science make sense and feel relevant to the learner.
I am an avid quilter, knitter, and crocheter. I have been crocheting and knitting for about 30 years, and quilting for about 15 years. I have knitted and crocheted hats, sweaters, scarves, blankets and baby layettes as gifts and by commission. I have completed more than 20 quilts and I have taught the quilting class at Hancock Fabrics stores through three different quilt-block-of-the-month classes.
Knowing how to manage schoolwork and approach any assignment is one of the first steps in becoming successful in school. I have taught a variety of grade levels from second grade through to ninth grade. I have raised my own daughter and one of my stepdaughters, and I have tutored more than twenty children and college or university students. A large portion of working with any of these children has involved teaching them how to approach school work and manage their assignments.
Writing is my favorite subject to teach. I write personally and understand the struggles and joys of writing well. I have an undergraduate degree in English Language and Literature, and I am National Writing Project trained. I love to see students come to me in the fall as reluctant writers and then receive their thank-you notes at the end of the year for making writing fun.
