I have personal experience with my own children by helping them with their homework. Some children in my neighborhood have come by my apartment with their assignments. I have a step-daughter who need help with her homework and she usually asks me to help her. I believe a child can learn when they have kind, patient people to help them. As a student in high school, my worst subject was Mathematics and Literature but I excelled in Biology and Science. During my two years at Eastern Oklahoma State College, my GPA was 2.25 at the end of my second year.
I also took Psychology of the Young Child which helped me understand the behavior of children and the frustration that accompanies the child when he or she cannot comprehend or complete an assignment. I believe today's children are tomorrow future. Without an education that is well-rounded, where would they be?
I have had experience working with adults who have mental disabilities. As an aide, I provided physical care for them and transported them to classes geared toward their abilities. Most of these classes were for occupational therapy. The therapy had to be continued within the living quarters of the clients.
My qualifications are follows:
I hold a high school diploma from Haileyville High school from 1979 and a 2-year associates degree in psychology from Eastern Oklahoma State College from 1981. I was also awarded the honor of Outstanding Adult Student when I was earning my Child Care Certificate-Kiamichi Area Vo-tech- McAlester Oklahoma in 1984 and Outstanding Student (1 semester) from Allied Health Careers-Kiamichi Area Vo-Tech McAlester, Oklahoma in 1985.
