My name is Yvonne. I attended Eastern Michigan University, which is/was the number one school for teachers in the state of Michigan. While there I majored in elementary education and minored in art, science and early childhood education. I graduated with a teaching certificate and a ZA endorsement which means I am highly qualified to work with children 3-6 years of age, where other certified teachers are not. I took my first teaching position in 1999 in a kindergarten classroom and became lead teacher in 2000. I received my Master's degree in curriculum and instruction in 2005 from the University of Phoenix. I taught 11 years in the kindergarten classroom 1 year and first grade and I am currently teaching a first grade and a first and second grade split classes in the subjects of math, science and social studies. Where I have not yet taught grades 3-6 I am certified to do so, as well as teach middle school science. I love science, but I love teaching kindergarten more than anything. I have tutored in several different settings and find it most rewarding.
