I am certified to teach English through PDE. I earned my degree in Education from Clarion University. My teaching experience includes two years teaching English at a South Carolina school. I gained a tremendous amount of experience in diversity, different learning styles and how to modify instruction to reach all learners.

I even accepted a position to teach GED skills at a prison farm in Darlington, South Carolina! I am thankful for that opportunity as it opened my eyes to how important education is for success.

I continued to hone my teaching skills at Abraxas in Marienville, PA. My experience there gave me insight in reaching both reluctant learners and learners who had fallen through the cracks of the public school system. Because the youth were often subject to crime and abuse, they often had no idea of their ability to learn. I helped them to read, write and speak with more confidence. I am best and well-suited for one-on-one or small group instruction.
