I am a quality teacher who loves working with children. I am energetic and take lessons from boring to interesting. I have a background in working with children with special needs, science education at the middle school level, and language arts. I have a Masters Degree in Special Education, and I am currently working on my PhD.
I have a lot of patience. Although I have only been teaching in public school for 9 years, I home schooled many foster children and my own children prior to entering the teaching profession.
I can provide parent references if asked. I have always made it a point to listen closely to parental information about a child because I believe that parents know their own child better than anyone else. Teaching is a partnership between the teacher, parent, and student.
I have completed many courses and trainings in reading. I am also able to adapt subjects to make the material easier for a student to understand. As a community volunteer, I operated homework groups with students from kindergarten through college in my neighborhood. I have also tutored students in many college subjects. I am an excellent writer and have worked under the different college formats. I worked as an on-line tutor for several programs.
