I am a conservative, caring teacher who delights in the moment when the understanding is shown through sweet eyes of wonder and delight. Learning accomplishments add an empowering that only grows more and more delightful as learning turns into knowledge, and knowledge turns into wisdom. With wisdom, life opens up to joy and success. Every person is gifted; they just need to hook deep into their potential and learn to conquer any barriers that stand in their way. I hope to be an advocate and help in that adventure.
I have been a teacher in many venues. I have taught in schools and in libraries. I have only taught "word classes," such as Spanish, grammar, creative writing, and penmanship. I have helped children with homework after school and taught home-school classes. I was the director of a small public library for almost seven years, where I created and led all the adult, teen and children programming. I love to help those who struggle with English to feel more empowered by the words they win with more and more practice. Any work with anyone falling in love with books and reading is my favorite work.
I have led many book clubs and reading programs.
I have taught and led Sunday Schools and Vacation Bible Schools for many years.
I have been a speaker, preacher and encourager with all levels of "listeners."
I have many, many years' experience as a secretary, bookkeeper, and office manager.
I love learning and will never think I am finished. I continue to sign up for college classes, workshops of various subjects and read and study every spare minute. There is so much out there to enjoy learning.
Come learn with me. I am like a grandmother figure, and full of fun and nurturing. We will look, learn and laugh. Life has so much to offer, and things that come along and feel like brick walls in our way to what we need in our lives - well, we will refuse to stop at those things. We will either break down that wall or climb right over it. I will help you. I wouldn't want anyone to miss out on the great things awaiting just past that "wall."
