With my extensive background in education, I have been successful with guiding students towards the potential that they missed due to classroom constraints. I have the skills necessary to aid students in the areas of Social Studies, Literature, Reading, Math, and Science.
Although my original degree was in Social Studies, I have been a Special Education teacher focusing on the Pennsylvania Department of Education Core Standards in various subjects for 15 years. I have experience working with students in both urban and suburban settings. I also have an extensive background in working with students who have IEP's. As a teacher in a self contained classroom, I have been afforded the opportunity to instruct students who have various learning modalities in all core subjects.
My life experiences have allowed me to instruct students outside of the classroom. I have been a coach from elementary to high school level in multiple sports. I have a passion for art. My spouse and I are currently foster parents. Personally providing instruction to my own children has helped them become successful, as well as made me a better teacher. Previous military experience has given me the opportunity to travel the world and gain insight on many different cultures. This experience has provided me a unique perspective on our world.
I know I can create a unique and effective classroom experience for your child if given the opportunity.
