Hi!My name is Michelle and I am an educator who has worked as a substitute teacher, a shadow and an elementary education paraprofessional. As a shadow, my responsibilities were dedicated and directed to one individual student in middle school. I followed that student from class to class assisting him with any compulsory tasks. Observing his accomplishments was so rewarding and exhilarating! I thoroughly enjoy the educational process and would love to help you achieve your educational expectations.
Additionally, I am also the mother of a sixth-grader and have assisted and overseen his homework since he started school. Being a mom affords me the opportunities to strengthen my tutoring skills and to stay abreast of the current curriculum.
While working in the school district, I had the opportunity to work with special education students in kindergarten, which as you know requires patience and understanding. There was one student who always had a smile on his face which inspired me to keep mine. His smile reminded me of the positive attitude I required to be an effective influence on children. In essence, we teach kids but they also teach us many things. Now he is in high school and I still see him in the neighborhood. He continues to put a smile on my face.
I believe my career path is being directed toward tutoring children. I am comfortable working with kindergarten through sixth grade as that is where my experience lies with my son. With my guidance, students will attain their goals and feel more confident to participate in class. I am quite resourceful and will go above and beyond the limits to ensure that learning occurs.
