I use many methods to teach my students so that they experience success in their areas of challenge. I believe that all students have the potential to learn and it is up to the teacher to provide innovative lesson plans, reliable assessments, and attainable goals so that both the student and teacher are accountable for the best results.

Learning can and should be fun. The best teachings are created when the students don't realize that they are learning.

I have earned a master's in Counseling and have worked as a guidance counselor. I have an undergraduate degree in a double major of Psychology and Sociology with a minor in writing. I have taught classes at the college level for English, sociology, and psychology.
