I am a former certified teacher who is retired from teaching in the public school system. I was certified in Elementary Education, k-5th grade and 6th-8th grade self-contained. In addition, I held a endorsement in teaching children with learning disabilities.
I have experience teaching in both the general and special education areas. I have taught special needs students with LD, ADD, ADHD, and Autism. Also, I have worked with adult students who were pursuing their high school diploma by teaching classes in Adult Education Programs. Since 2002, I have been providing tutoring to students in kindergarten through college.
I find that being a teacher is an exceedingly rewarding career. I especially love working one-to-one with students, as I can gain a better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses, then turn those weaknesses into strengths. Thus, I can make a huge impact on a student's academic future. In addition to providing the teaching, I work on giving students the encouragement they need in order to believe in themselves, which is necessary in order to learn. I have had a lot of wonderful success with my former students!
