Hi, I've wanted to be a teacher ever since I can remember. I graduated from Millersville University in 1980 with a BS in English. I taught at Manheim Central for one year before deciding to start a family. I have two daughters and when they were growing up, I decided to be a stay at home mom. I've never regretted that decision. When my children got older, I decided to go back to teaching. I worked in the Red Lion School district, contracted through LIU 12, for fourteen years as an Englush as a Second Language teacher. I have worked in the South Western School District for the last two years in the same capacity. I earned my Program Specialist Certificate in ESL from Penn State University and my M.Ed from the University of Turabo in cooperation with Penn State University. I teach ESL in grades K-12, and I also have experience teaching adults. In ESL, I am qualified to teach the skills necessary for proficiency in English in reading, writing, speaking and listening. In the capacity of teaching English, I am experienced in teaching literature, grammar, reading, reading comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, writing and test prep. I have also been an adjunct professor at York College. While there, I taught undergraduate courses in education.
I believe in tailoring my instruction to the individual needs of my students and that not all students learn using the same methodology. I enjoy getting to knowing my students and discovering the best ways to teach and motivate them. I have high, yet realistic, expectations for my students. I believe that all students can learn and succeed when they feel comfortable to make mistakes, understand that they are capable and smart; and, if they believe in themselves, because I do!
I have been helping my students develop their study skills for the last fourteen years. Learning to set realistic goals and organize thoughts, as well as materials, is very important. Additionally, most students do not know how to take notes or how to pick out the main idea in a text. I have taught this to my students for many years.
